Big 7Tea

Celebrate the 70th anniversary of the NHS with a Big 7Tea party.

Join the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the NHS with a Big 7Tea party. It’s the perfect opportunity to celebrate one of the nation’s most loved institutions, and what better way to celebrate than with a cup of tea?  With the Big 7Tea everybody can get involved in the 70th anniversary celebrations by sharing a welcome drink and their stories of thanks. You may also wish to raise some money for one of our charities. 

Although Thursday 5th July is the actual 70th Birthday of the NHS, you can hold your Big 7Tea on a date that works best for you and your guests.

How do I raise money?

The easiest thing is to ask your guests for a donation. You could also hold a raffle, a competition or something else – it's entirely up to you but the more fun the better. 

The important thing is to have fun and to let everyone know about the great cause you are supporting.

Do I have to collect the money myself?

It is up to you. You can either collect the money yourself and pay it in in one go or your guests can pay in themselves. And don’t forget that some employers offer to match money that their employees raise for charity so it is always worth asking.

Remember, you don’t need to collect donations at your Big 7Tea, it's up to you.

Paying in Money or Making a Donation

You can pay in using a debit card or a credit card.

Also, you can make a donation without joining a Big 7Tea.

Donate to Big 7Tea

You can also send cheques made payable to ‘Royal Free Charity’ to Pond Street, London NW3 2QG. If your donation is for a specific charity you should note that on the back of your cheque.
