Raise a cuppa to UCLH next week

UCLH is joining in the national big tea celebrations being held across the NHS next week. We're hosting five parties to raise money for NHS charities.

The main national event is on Friday 5 July.

“The day is all about celebrating the NHS and highlighting the crucial role of NHS charities in enhancing and improving patient care. Each year, NHS charities give £1m a day to the NHS,” said Carol Haraldsson, head of charitable giving. 

At UCLH, our official charity, UCLH Charity, supports staff, equipment, services and research to the tune of almost £10 million every year. Staff benefits funded by UCLH Charity include season ticket loans, long service and celebrating excellence awards and Christmas party grants as well as funding for individual projects involving staff development, education and training.

This year, the UCLH fundraising team is hosting tea parties at the locations shown in the list below. You’ll be able to stop by for a cup of tea, a slice of cake and find out about how you can get involved in supporting UCLH Charity.
