Zoe Lintin, chief people officer at DBTH said: “On this special anniversary, it is so important that we celebrate and champion the people who make the NHS great.
“The people at DBTH are determined and loyal and have worked through some of the most challenging years of their careers in recent times.
“These celebrations, and the gift of a box of tea to share, are just some of the ways in which we show our gratitude to them.”
In addition, other celebrations hosted by the trust included free entry to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park for a day, and an afternoon tea for colleagues who had served more than 40 years in the NHS.

Led by NHS Charities Together and the network of more than 230 NHS charities around the UK, the NHS Big Tea brings the nation together to celebrate the birthday of the NHS in July and give thanks to the workforce.
The events also help raise funds to provide the extra support needed for colleagues, patients, and volunteers – last year the DBTH charity attracted donations just short of £1,000.
