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.

Points of light award

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.”
