Ellie Orton, CEO of NHS Charities Together, said:
“It’s so exciting to have Morrisons as our headline sponsor for the NHS Big Tea. After the year we have all had, it will be wonderful to get together on the NHS’s birthday and help to raise even more money to provide the ongoing vital support needed by NHS patients, staff and volunteers.
“Morrisons is a brilliant match for the NHS Big Tea because it has done so much to support the NHS during the Covid crisis and has such strong links with the communities it serves. I can’t wait to see what we can achieve together.”
David Potts, Morrisons Chief Executive, said:
“As we move forward with hope for a brighter future, we’re incredibly proud to continue our support for all those in the NHS – who have shown care and resilience in the toughest of times.
“Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve done our best to be there for the NHS. From early shopping hours to ensure doctors and nurses had the food they needed to discounts on groceries to show our thanks. And now we’re delighted to be supporting the NHS Big Tea. We’re fully behind this important day and look forward to a cup of tea and a moment of reflection on the 5th July.”
About the NHS Big Tea
Taking place on the NHS’s birthday on 5th July, NHS Charities Together is urging the public to join the UK’s biggest tea break and be part of a national outpouring of thanks while raising money for the incredible people in the NHS who have been there for us over the last year.
Everyone can take part by raising a mug or holding their own virtual or physical tea party (following the latest social distancing guidance) at 3pm on that day or at any time that suits them on or around that date.
NHS Charities Together will use the funds raised through the NHS Big Tea to increase the practical and emotional support available to NHS staff, patients and volunteers are they continue to battle the Covid crisis and start down the long road to recovery.
