Critically acclaimed Scottish playwright and artist John Byrne is Patron of Teapot Trust. Amongst his acts of support of the charity, John Byrne auctioned painting titled West of 8th, on behalf of Teapot Trust in 2015.

John Byrne also features in Teapot Trust’s doART video, which can be viewed on YouTube.

John stated, "You do incredibly important work; in these days of entertaining children with technology, home-made entertainment is long gone. The place to go for safety, wonder and magic is your own imagination, available any time for free – there you can roam to your heart’s content. All you need is a pencil and paper – the battery never runs out and the screen never freezes."
