NHS Big Tea 2021

Brew your thank you with NHS Big Tea 

For the NHS Birthday on the 5 July, the nation will come together for an outpouring of love, thanks and generosity for the people who’ve gone above and beyond to care for us this year – our NHS champions!

By hosting a very special NHS Big Tea party, you can raise vital funds for our charity EyUp!, the NHS charity for South West Yorkshire Partnership Foundation Trust

How to get involved

Just by putting the kettle on, you can provide improved environments for our staff and service users. Bake banana bread and ensure the latest equipment is available to staff. Or pour a cuppa and help our service users to continue to receive the best possible care.

There are two main ways you can show your support:

  • Host a tea party or gathering over a cup of tea.

Get together with your friends and family, fundraise at your workplace, have a street party, a virtual event, or organise a tea party with your place of worship or sports club (ensuring you follow all government covid guidelines).

  • Take 5, Donate £5, Nominate 5

Take a break out of your day to enjoy a cuppa and pour out thanks to our NHS heroes, share a picture of you and your brew on social media and tag 5 friends to nominate them to do the same! Text BREW to 70490 to donate £5. Texts cost £5 plus one standard rate message

Pour out your thanks to our NHS

We can’t know for sure what the future holds. But one thing’s for certain, your tea party will help the hardworking staff across services at SWYPFT and when they need it most.

Put on the kettle and crack open the biscuits as it is time to get this par-TEA started!


Let us know you’re organising an event!

Register your fundraising here

Don’t forget to tell your friends and work about the NHS Big Tea and share on social media #NHSBigTea.

How we’ll support your tea party?

Once signed up, using the link above, we will send you a fundraising pack to help make your event a tea party extravaganza. From posters, printable bunting, virtual zoom backgrounds, sponsorship forms, fundraising support and advice, we will be able to support you along the way.

We also have EyUp! Travel mugs available to purchase on our Ebay store to ensure you have a proper Yorkshire brew!



When is it?

On the 5 July at 3pm the nation will unite with a big, celebratory tea break. Can’t make it? Don’t worry, your fundraising can also take place at a time convenient to you.

How can I fundraise?

You can raise money at your tea party by setting up a JustGiving or Virgin Money page, using an EyUp! sponsorship form, or text BREW to 70490 to donate £5.

There is no limit to how much you fundraise. Whatever you donate or fundraise will be hugely appreciated and we guarantee that all money raised will benefit service users and staff across our services in Barnsley, Wakefield, Calderdale & Kirklees.

Can I host an online event?

Hosting a virtual tea party can be just as fun using platforms like skype or zoom. Invite your friends, colleagues and family together on your preferred platform and get the tea flowing. You could brew a game of bingo, host a virtual afternoon tea event, or why not go all out and organise a Tea Duelling competition, the perfect way to find out which biscuit stands above the rest!
