The NHS is turning 70!

Celebrate the 70th birthday of the NHS with a Big7Tea party.

The NHS is turning 70 this year and what better way to celebrate one of the nation’s most loved institutions than with a cup of tea?

But this will be more than just a regular brew. On and around 5th July, people up and down the country will get together to raise a cuppa to our beloved NHS and raise funds for NHS charities. Join the celebrations and host a Big7Tea party to raise money for the Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Charity (BSUH Charity).

Support Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Charity

Over the last 70 years the NHS has transformed the health and wellbeing of the nation and become the envy of the world. And helping behind the scenes are more than 250 dedicated NHS charities – one being Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Charity.

Whether supporting research and development, brightening up hospital environments, providing state-of-the-art equipment, or supporting staff, the BSUH Charity improves care at the four hospitals of the Brighton and Sussex University NHS Trust to go above and beyond.

Host a NHS Big7Tea

It’s easy to host a NHS Big 7Tea party. Download your BSUH Charity Big7Tea Party Pack here. The pack includes a fundraising agreement, posters, bunting, and tea cake cards to label your tasty treats. Decide where and when you want to hold your tea, and begin inviting your friends, neighbours, family and colleagues. Enjoy the party, collect your donations and pay them in to the BSUH Charity.

We are tracking all of the Big7Tea parties for the BSUH Charity so please complete the Fundraising Agreement (page 1 of the Big7Tea pack), and email or post it back to us.

Some ideas for where you could host the event include your lovely garden, community centres (Cornerstone, Ralli Hall, Yew, Jubilee, Ashenground, Hangletown, Fairfield, Gattons, or others), your local parish, or perhaps even your local school.

Your Big7Tea party can support any of the four hospitals: the Princess Royal Hospital, the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital, the Royal Sussex County Hospital, or the Sussex Eye Hospital – or a ward or department that means something to you. Make sure you include this information when you send in your fundraising pack or Big7Tea Party Collection.

Paying in Money or Making a Donation

How to raise money?
The easiest way would be to ask your guests for a donation. You could also hold a raffle or a competition – it’s entirely up to you! Remember the more fun the better – this is a birthday party!

Do I have to collect the money myself?
There are two way to collect the money.
1. You could collect cash or cheques on the day and pay it in to the BSUH Charity.
2. You could set up an online fundraising page and ask your guests to make secure donations to your page. Online donations are automatically deposited into the BSUH Charity bank account and directed to the area you care about. You can set up your Big7Tea party fundraising page by following this link .

Making a Donation
Supporters need not host a Big7Tea Party to contribute to the NHS’s birthday celebrations. If you would like to make a donation to the BSUH Charity as a Thank you for the compassionate, steadfast service of the staff at our hospitals, you can make a donation here .

You can also send cheques made payable to ‘BSUH Charity’ to BSUH Charity, RSCH c/o Post Office, Eastern Road, Brighton, BN2 5BE. If your donation is for a specific hospital, you should note this on the back of your cheque.
