Join a national outpouring of love for the NHS with an NHS Big Tea Party

Celebrate the 75th birthday of the NHS by joining the nation’s biggest tea party on or around Wednesday 5th July 2023. 


Host your own NHS Big Tea party at work, at home, at school or in the community. Recruit your colleagues, club members and friends to join your 'Brew Crew' and have a tea-fuelled fundraiser in support of the South Western Ambulance Charity. 


Get the tea drinkers and cake bakers together and 'spill the tea' (modern day speak for having a chat or a gossip!). 

To discuss your plans (or swap recipes) call us on

0300 369 0108 / 07825 853630 or email

"An NHS Big Tea event is the perfect opportunity to get together with your 'Brew Crew' to show your appreciation for the NHS heroes that continue to work tirelessly to look after us all. Every cuppa can make a difference!"

Louise Walsh, Charity Fundraising Manager
