Our AMAZING collection can heroes have collected a fantastic £410 for us in 2014! This money enabled us to provide 6 1:1 art therapy sessions and 4 open group art therapy sessions supporting approximately 60 chronically ill children. Every penny really does count. Thank you!

family business teaparty

We are thrilled that Family Business United have chosen the Teapot Trust as their charity to support this year.
As Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United explains, “We have been looking for a charity to support and through various routes came to find The Teapot Trust.  We have just launched Scottish Family Business Week 2015 and as a small charity that started out in Scotland it seemed like the obvious choice.  Family values are at the core of what FBU is all about so a charity that seeks to help children and their families find comfort during a dificult period in their lives really fits with who we are.”

Various events are planned such as The Scottish Family Business Cycling Challenge and The Family Business Tea Party and FBU will be announcing more about these events and others that the family business community can support in due course.

A special thank you to Jo and Mica for inviting us and for making us feel so welcome, you guys are awesome! And last but not least a HUGE thank you to our volunteers, we wouldn’t have made it through the weekend without you. We hope you all enjoyed yourselves as much as we did!

We are delighted that Gilson Gray have chosen the Teapot Trust to be its Charity of the Year.  Together, we can continue to make a real difference to the lives of over 3000 children and their families across Scotland and in London.
We know that Gilson Gray’s staff will be undertaking a range of imaginative fundraising activities as well as providing us with some much appreciated business skills and advice, and we thank them for all the hard work they will no doubt put into the coming year’s partnership.
