Enjoy a cup of tea for the #RoyalFreeFamily, and support patients, staff and researchers across our hospitals.

On Tuesday 5 July, join us to celebrate the National 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, while raising funds to provide the extra support needed for staff, patients, and volunteers.

Here at the Royal Free Charity, we’re dedicated to supporting our amazing NHS colleagues across our hospitals. We enhance professional development through our grants and staff awards, and promote wellbeing through psychological support services, therapeutic massage and calming rest spaces.

Raise a cup and saucer to our team

You can show your appreciation for our staff by holding a Big Tea wherever you are – with family, colleagues or friends.

You could simply ask for a donation in return for tea and a slice of cake, and boost your fundraising by raffling off a cake or perhaps a game of guessing how many teabags are in a jar.
