MID CHESHIRE HOSPITALS CHARITY HOSTS BIG TEA PARTY TO CELEBRATE NHS BIRTHDAY


Last week the team at Mid Cheshire Hospitals Charity hosted a tea party at Leighton Hospital as part of the national NHS Big Tea campaign. Live music, refreshments and games were enjoyed by Mid Cheshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust staff and invited guests.
The NHS Big Tea is an annual fundraising and awareness campaign with the aims of celebrating the NHS Birthday on 5th July and recognising the vital work NHS charities do to support our health service.
The charity also received a great response from the local community after asking groups and businesses to host their own tea party to mark the occasion. Crewe Alexandra FC, Northwich Radio, Herbalife and Richmond Village (both in Nantwich) and many more held their own events to ‘raise a cuppa’ to the NHS, whilst raising funds for MCH Charity’s ‘Everybody Knows Somebody’ dementia appeal.


Emma Robertson, MCH Charity Manager said: “Once again we were delighted to be part of this annual nationwide campaign to involve local communities in supporting their NHS Charities. We believe charity plays an important role within the NHS, not only do we fund state-of-the-art equipment, comforts and all the added extras which help make our hospitals better, but we also provide a vital service to the thousands of people who want to say thank you to the staff, wards, departments and community services which care for them and their loved ones every day.”

There are more than 250 NHS charities across the UK. Most of them focus on helping our hospitals do more, whilst others support mental health trusts, community health trusts and ambulance trusts. In recent years NHS charities have funded major capital projects, pioneering research and medical equipment in hospitals, helping patients access the best possible care when they need it most. They also play a key role in mobilising volunteers to support NHS staff, brightening wards and waiting areas with colourful and engaging art and building an important link between our hospitals and our communities.
Mid Cheshire Hospitals charity are keen to support more local groups and businesses with their fundraising. Whatever you choose to do, they can support you through your fundraising journey and can offer lots of resources and support to help make whatever you do a huge success.
