We’re looking for local businesses, particularly with a focus on environmentally friendly products, to sell their goods at East Cheshire NHS Trust. We have a stall based in the main reception at Macclesfield District General Hospital which is available between 10am-4pm every day.

Community_Tea_Party[1].jpgCan you hear the faint clatter of teacups across the nation? Water on the boil? That’s because the NHS Big Tea 2023 is just around the corner! Will you step up to the kettle and fundraise for East Cheshire NHS Trust Charity?

You can brew up a storm on 5 July, the 75th birthday of the NHS, or any day that week.  

Hosting an NHS Big Tea is a great way to bring your community, school, business, friends and family together around a shared love of the NHS whilst raising money to support NHS staff, volunteers and patients. There are so many ways to raise money; from asking for donations in return for tea, cake and good company, to hosting a quiz, or running baking competitions. The possibili-teas are endless!

Everyone can get involved and every cuppa makes a difference.

So, grab your teapot, pop the kettle on and let’s turn tea and cake into cash.
