Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner had a cuppa with workers from across Cambridge on their tea breaks – and it all took place online in aid of a good cause.
They took part in Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust’s virtual tea break to help raise money for the city’s NHS heroes. The trust is encouraging everyone who is now working at home to set up a virtual tea break at 3pm every day.
Attendees are donating £3, the average price of a takeaway drink.
The money will help fund emotional and physical wellbeing for staff on the frontline of the coronavirus crisis as well as iPads to allow families of patients in intensive care to communicate with their loved ones.
Daniel Zeichner MP said: “The advice is clear: stay at home to protect the NHS and help save lives. That means thousands of people across the city are working from home, so why not get together (virtually of course) for a cup of tea with others. I know I’ll enjoyed my cuppa even more knowing that we were raising money to help our NHS heroes.”
