On Friday the 28th April at 7.30pm, the award winning Stenton Singers are putting on their annual Spring concert in Preston Kirk. The Singers have been together for 30 years and their conductor, Lynda Jeffrey was recently awarded a BEM for services to music and charity. Their twice yearlyconcerts have raised thousands of pounds for various charities over the years and we are delighted that their Spring Concert this year is in aid of the Teapot Trust. If you want to go along and see the group, who won the Edinburgh Evening News Trophy two years in a row, tickets are available from Linton Butchers or East Linton Post Office.

 

Sadly, due to weather, team teapot have had to put their challenge on hold for the time being. They do however hope to get the go ahead at the first possible opening in June 2017! We are gutted for you guys but we know you will use this time to continue your training and spread the word about art therapy even further!

We had the pleasure of meeting the boys and girls from Summerlea House Nursery yesterday in Largs and received this cheque for £1000! The children took part in a sponsored walk with their families and friends recently, all to raise funds so we can continue to provide our art therapy projects in Glasgow! Thank you so much!!
