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.
