On Tuesday 5th July the NHS turned 74. To celebrate NHS Charities across the UK joined forces to host their annual Big Tea.
Royal Berks Charity wanted to recognise and thank the incredible staff across our six sites throughout Berkshire and encourage to sit back and relax with a cup of tea and biscuit on us.
Our corporate sponsor, Ridge LLP came along on the day to help us hand out goody bags to our staff and to man a cake stall outside the main hospital entrance which was filled with tasty treats! One of the Ridge volunteers said “I had such a lovely day, thank you so much for letting us come along and get stuck in. It’s great to hear that so much was raised – I hope the NHS staff also enjoyed the day and their goody bags!”
Engaging with our local community and visitors to the hospital is something we really enjoy. It enables us to spread our message and tell people about what we do. We couldn’t support the hospital and other sites if it wasn’t for the support of the public.
Local community groups and individuals helped us raise over £2,000 by holding an NHS Big Tea in their workplaces and in their homes – we can’t wait to celebrate the 75th birthday of the NHS and have already started planning a bigger and better event.
