"I originally heard about the Teapot Trust through my parents. I also have a friend who volunteers with the Trust and she told me about the fantastic benefits of art therapy. I used to really enjoy creative works at school and it was something that I perhaps retrospectively took for granted. I thought the marathon was a great way to raise awareness for the therapeutic benefits that perhaps students my age potentially weren't aware of or had not associated with art. Most of my fundraising was carried out through social media posts such as facebook and instagram which proved quite successful although getting students to donate proved harder than I expected at times!"

Congratulations to Ed who raised an awesome £2,503 for Teapot Trust. If Ed has inspired you to get out there and take on a challenge you've always wanted to try, please get in touch to see how you can support children and families coping with chronic conditions.
