RCN Foundation are Bird & Blend's ChariTEA of the Quarter!

We’re honoured to kick off 2024 by announcing that we’re Bird & Blend Tea Co. ChariTEA of the Quarter!

Bird & Blend Tea Co. is an independent, award-winning tea company on a mission to spread happiness and reimagine tea! Sustainability is at the heart of their business, and they have stores throughout the UK, so why not pay them a visit?!

Launched in 2014, their ChariTEA Programme has supported over 30 worthwhile causes, donating £114,000 and counting to charity!

ChariTEA of the Quarter

As ChariTEA of the Quarter, we have chosen Deep Breaths as our tea of choice. Described as a cleansing and calming tea, this tea is filled to the brim with ginger, peppermint leaves and chamomile – we can’t think of a more relaxing way to start the new year full of zen!

Money from all online purchases will be donated to the RCN Foundation by Bird & Blend

We’re certain everyone has a great story to share about a time a nurse, midwife, or healthcare support worker has cared for them or someone they care about. Why not pop into your local Bird & Blend and leave your message of appreciation with your purchase? Just ask at the store for more information and know that your message of kindness will be shared with nurses, midwives, and healthcare support workers in your community.

Our partnership with Bird & Blend is so important to us. Money raised from all online purchases of Deep Breaths will support nurses like Lily, who are facing hardship despite being in work. It will support nursing associates like Crystal, who was awarded an RCN Foundation education grant to support her study towards a degree in Adult Nursing.

Our partnership means we, and the public, can give something back to those who care for us – whether it’s by sharing a memorable story of care we’ve received, through a message of kindness, or through or hardship and education grants, together we can make a real and lasting difference to those who care for us, every day.

Spread the word!

Share far and wide with friends, family, colleagues – you name it – and let them know that all online purchase of Deep Breaths from now until 31 March will support nurses, midwives, and healthcare support workers across the UK!
