We are very lucky to have be given this signed Hugo Boss golf hat! Signed by reigning US Open Champion, and former golf world no1 Martin Kaymer.
Since the Scottish Open is starting today we thought what better time to auction it! So if you or anybody you know is a big golf fan then be sure to place a bid on eBay before next Tuesday!
All proceeds will go to the provision of art therapy for chronically ill children across the UK.
We are delighted for our founders, Laura and John Young, for receiving the Prime Ministers ‘Points of Light’ award in June! The award was presented by Lord Dunlop at the new Sick Kids hospital in Glasgow. Both Laura and John are thrilled, especially as they are the 7th and 8th recipients to receive the award from Scotland.
Prime Minister David Cameron said:
“Laura and John have taken the awful experience of losing their daughter Verity and used it to selflessly dedicate their lives to finding a way to help other sick children. The art therapy their work has provided has helped thousands of children with serious illnesses across the country, helping them to feel more in control of their condition.
For those children and their families Laura and John are true Points of Light.”

A big good luck to the brave Northern Northerners’s who are taking part in the Tough Mudder challenge this weekend at Drumlanrig in aid of the Teapot Trust!
They will be put to the test in this grueling challenge with ice cold lochs and of course lots of mud!
Did you know it is volunteers’ week this week? So to celebrate we wanted to say a big thank you to our amazing teapot volunteers! We are so lucky to have you helping us at events and in the office. You guys do it all from selling merchandise, organising events, helping design our posters, face painting and art work to packing our Christmas cards. You are all amazing and we can’t thank you enough!
Thank you Blackhall St. Columba’s Art Club for supporting us this year at their annual art exhibition, were they raised a fantastic £1000 for us!
This money will help us provide 20 hours of open group art therapy to children with chronic illness across Scotland!
A special thank you to Valerie Gordon and Myke Grantham for all of their help.
