Join the NHS Big Tea

A community tea party in the garden

What is it?

Can you hear the faint clatter of teacups across the nation? Water on the boil? That’s because the NHS Big Tea 2022 is here, and we’d absolutely love you to be part of our brew crew!

We want the entire nation to be awash with tea and we're asking you to help us achieve that this July. Host your NHS Big Tea Party on 5th July in celebration of the NHS’s 74th birthday or choose any date that suits you.

Once you’ve named the date, decide where you’re going to have it – at your home, in your school hall, at your workplace or on the village green – anything goes.

Then, all you need to do is invite your tea tribe and get brewing! Every cuppa you make and every tea bag you squeeze will support the seriously ill children at Great Ormond Street Hospital.

How can I get involved?

It’s easy as one, two, tea! All you need to do is get your JustGiving page set up here.

Collecting cash donations too? You can use this form to pay in your donations.

What do I need?

We’ve got plenty of resources available to help you promote your event and make sure it looks great on the day. From posters and bunting to coasters, place name cards, a fundraising game and much more!

You can download all our promotional materials here and our on-the-day resources can be found here.
