The charities want as many people as possible to get involved in a national outpouring of love and thanks for NHS staff and volunteers on its birthday by hosting or taking part in an NHS Big Tea at 3pm on 5 July.
Each event can be in person or virtual, with community, friends, family or at work.
By taking part in the nation’s biggest tea break to raise money for either Baby Beat, who support new mums, babies, and mums to be being cared for at Lancashire Teaching Hospitals, or the hospitals’ main charity arm, which supports patients and colleagues, by raising funds for the added extras outside of NHS funding including equipment, research, and additional comforts.
People can host their own Covid -19 compliant event or they can show their support by taking 5 minutes to enjoy a tea break, texting £5 to support NHS charities and tagging five friends on social media and calling on them to do the same.
Thousands are expected to host events within Covid -19 guidelines and NHS Charities Together has produced a pack to help those events go safely and with a swing.
