A local NHS charity is calling on communities across West Sussex to hold their very own ‘Big7Tea’ party to celebrate 70 years of the NHS this July.
Love Your Hospital, the dedicated charity of Western Sussex Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, provides funding for medical equipment, facilities, staff development and improving patient care at St Richard’s, Worthing and Southlands Hospitals.
As part of a nationwide celebration to acknowledge seven decades of the health service, the charity is asking local people, schools, churches, groups and businesses to take part in Big7Tea celebrations which will be happening up and down the country on Thursday 5th July.
Whether it’s a front room gathering, street party, village hall do or a cake sale in the workplace, supporters will be able to dedicate every penny raised from their tea party to a particular local hospital, ward or area of care close to their heart.
Amanda Tucker, Head of Charity for Love Your Hospital says: “The NHS is special to all of us and we know by the support the community gives to our charity that locally people care greatly about the work that the NHS delivers. As we all come together to celebrate this prestigious birthday, what better way than to show your thanks than by raising a cuppa and raising vital funds”.
