The NHS celebrates it’s birthday each year on the 5th of July. In 2020 the NHS will be 72 and we are inviting you to organise a tea party to toast Kingston Hospital on or around Sunday, 05 July 2020.

We have been very fortunate to have the support of some wonderful local churches, schools and businesses as well groups of staff across the hospital who have garden tea parties and cakes sales to support their services. You may want to crack open the staff room tea bags, brew up for your family or commandeer a local venue to invite friends or even open up your garden and have a party. However you choose to celebrate, a pack with everything you need to host the perfect party is available to download via the following links:

We also have collection tins, balloons and mugs which we are happy to give you for your event!

If you do choose to take part in the NHS Big Tea this year, don’t forget to tell us by completing our online form here, email us on or call 020 8973 5041 so we can share your story.
