Now, more than ever, there’s never been a better time to say “Thank You” to your local NHS.  Why not have a cuppa, a cake and raise some cash for Cardiff & Vale Health Charity by taking part in the NHS Big Tea campaign.

The NHS Big Tea is a call to join a national outpouring of thanks on 5th July – the birthday of the NHS or at any time that works for you. It’ll be a celebration to show the love, gratitude, a shared moment of joy and generosity, warmth and reflection. All stirred together like our national brew.

The past year has been like no other, and most people have a reason to thank their NHS heroes – every nurse working twelve hour shifts in a facemask, every doctor wearing full PPE, for every clinician fighting to keep our loved ones alive. For every hospital porter, support worker and paramedic putting themselves on the frontline.

Over the past year, Cardiff & Vale Health Charity supporters have helped to provide much needed aid for Health Board staff by funding counselling and mental health and wellbeing sessions, and much-needed practical things, like food, drink and a place to rest.


By holding an NHS Big Tea this summer, your donations will ensure sure that the Health Charity can keep on supporting dedicated NHS staff throughout Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan when they need it the most.

Children in the Teddy Bear Nursery at University Hospital Llandough recently held an NHS Big Tea with their teddies.  Many of these children’s parents are NHS staff who have been working on the frontline during the pandemic. 

Get involved by either hosting an outdoor NHS Big Tea party in person or virtually with friends and family, or get involved just by taking a tea break with your colleagues, donate £5 and tag 5 people to show your appreciation.  Hold a bake sale or treat your friends and family to a full afternoon tea, the choice is yours!

With every cup of tea and every toastie, with every penny and every pound raised, the Health Charity will champion the wellbeing of local NHS heroes. It’s time to brew a national thank you.
