Considering a donation in your will?

Our vision is to encourage self-expression, manage anxiety and build resilience in children with chronic illness through the therapeutic process of art.

You can be part of that vision by considering a gift to us in your will. Please be assured that every gift, whatever the amount, means a huge amount to us and enables us to make a positive difference in a life of a child suffering from chronic illness.

Many adults never get round to making a will yet this is the only way to ensure that your estate gets distributed in the way that you want it to be done after you’re gone. Having a will in place makes sure that the people and causes that are dear to you are looked after in the event of your death, and can be a good way to reduce or avoid inheritance tax that may be due on your estate.

The current inheritance tax threshold is £325,000 and the rate of tax is 40%. Estates that would be subject to this rate, can reduce it to 36% if 10% or more of the net value of the estate is left to a registered charity such as the Teapot Trust.

We would encourage everyone to make a will. It’s usually a simple and easy process, and your solicitor or lawyer will guide you through each step.
