Royal Berks Charity, supported by Ridge, urges Berkshire to help NHS go further by joining NHS Big Tea.
On Tuesday 5th July, Royal Berks Charity, with the support of corporate partners, Ridge, are inviting people across Berkshire to join the biggest NHS tea party yet by hosting their own NHS Big Tea on the health service’s 74th birthday.
Led by NHS Charities Together, the NHS Big Tea brings the nation together to celebrate the birthday of our beloved NHS, giving thanks to the workforce, whilst raising funds to provide the extra support needed for staff, patients, and volunteers. Communities can celebrate by making time for tea – another national treasure!
Last year more than 4,800 hosts signed up, collectively raising over £500,000. In addition to individuals, schools, community groups and organisations, more than 150 NHS charities were involved, including Royal Berks Charity.
Jo Warrior, Charity Director at Royal Berks Charity said: “The support we received last year was amazing and we want to be bigger and better this year. With the support of Ridge we will be saying a huge thank you to our amazing NHS staff for their continued hard work and dedication – we want our local communities to join us in taking a break and raising a cuppa.”
Steve Cooper, Managing Partner at Ridge commented “We at Ridge think the work of the Royal Berkshire NHS Foundation Trust is wonderful – which is why we’re delighted to support the work of the Royal Berks Charity and the NHS Big Tea.”
Volunteers from Ridge, a multidiscipline Property and Construction Consultancy who help their clients create better, more sustainable places for people to live, learn and work, will be with us on the day of the Big Tea helping us sell cakes on our public cake stand, and to dish out goody bags to all our staff.
