Helping where we can in these challenging times...
As well as our usual charity support, we've been making sure there's plenty of tea for the heroes working tirelessly within our NHS.
Our donation with the Sri Lanka High Commission to Bart's Heath, the largest NHS trust in London with six partner hospitals including London Nightingale Hospital was warmly received by the frontline staff who are working around the clock in our battle with this pandemic.
We also sent our beautiful Vintage Victorian range of tea tins to Nevill Hall Hospital in Abergavenny.
At the end of April 2018 Nick Houghton, Director of New English Teas, was out in Sri Lanka visiting our tea suppliers. While he was there he visited the LEADS children’s home in Colombo and saw for himself how the home has been refurbished since the floods two years ago and the effort that goes in to helping rebuild the lives of young children scarred from family break up and trauma.
The wall painting shown was drawn by the children who completed their time at the home in March 2018 and were illustrating their dreams for the future!
New English Teas have been able to make a financial contribution to the great work that goes on through this residential home.
