One of our supporters, Lucien, recently celebrated his 6th birthday and decided this year that he would like his friends and family to donate to the Teapot Trust! We were sent these lovely pictures from his birthday party, we hope you had a really special day Lucien 🙂 Thank you for supporting us! Happy Birthday!!

We have a brand new video to share with you all, which shows one of our art therapists demonstrating the process of individual art therapy. Watch it here!

At the Teapot Trust our aim is to offer children a way to express, process and share thoughts and emotions. Art therapy can offer additional means to communication, as well as helping a child feel more in control and possibly to cope better with their chronic condition.FB profile

Our co-founder, John, and 3 of his friends are taking on a huge challenge in September all to raise money and awareness for the work we do! They will be cycling from Marble Arch, London to the Arc de Triomphe in Paris! Read all about it in this article  and sponsor them here.


We are delighted to hear that we have been chosen as one of the benefiting charities of AECOM‘s Christmas donation appeal, donating £500 to our art therapy projects. Thank you!


We are absolutely over the moon to announce that we have received £35,657 from Global’s Make Some Noise! We are extremely grateful to Global and all their wonderful listeners for their generosity in supporting the Teapot Trust and in raising awareness of the art therapy work we’re doing in hospitals across Scotland. The extra funding that Global’s Make Some Noise has given will make a huge difference to our work in helping us to support around 1400 children with chronic illness in Scotland. On behalf of them and us – thank you all so much!
