International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world every May 12 th, the anniversary of Florence Nightingale’s birth. What could be better than gathering a group of friends and sitting down together to enjoy an indulgent treat of cakes, scones and lots of lovely tea to celebrate the birthday of this famous Nurse and at the same time raising money for the Nurses at Colchester General Hospital. We are urging as many people as possible to dust off their best china, dig out their recipe books and think of somewhere to throw a tea party. It could be in your kitchen, at the office, in the park or even on the beach. We don’t mind as long as you have fun while you fundraise.
If you would like to join in and raise funds for the nurses on one of our wards please contact us for an Afternoon Tea Party information pack.
