IF YOU love a cuppa, cake and fundraising, this should be just your cup of tea.
The Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity is asking supporters to help celebrate 71 years of the NHS with a special tea party.
The charity is teaming up with colleagues from The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust to host an NHS Big Tea Party on Friday, July 5, in the hospital’s rooftop restaurant.
The event aims to inspire similar tea parties across the town to celebrate the health service.
Martin Havenhand, chairman of the hospital trust, said: “We are thrilled to bring our national pastime of drinking tea and the great National Health Service together to celebrate its wonderful history and the care it continues to provide.
“This is our way of thanking our colleagues for the work they do as well as rallying support from the public to raise funds for NHS charities.
“We hope to see tea parties in staff rooms, classrooms, offices and community spaces this July as we ask people in Rotherham to celebrate with us.”
All money raised from the NHS tea party events will be split equally between the Rotherham Hospital and Community Charity and NHS Charities Together.
We want to continue holding local authorities to account, attending court and council meetings, as well as providing breaking news, competitions and offers – but it costs money.
