Teapot Trust
The Teapot Trust funds and provides professional art therapy in hospitals for children suffering from chronic illness. It was set up in memory of Verity Young who suffered from Lupus and then died from cancer in November 2009. After Verity died, her parents found a note she had written which said ‘Big or small there is always a difference only you can do.’ Please help us make that difference.

This year in order to promote the great work of the Teapot Trust we are upping the physial challange ante again and cycling from Geneva to Nice over 20,000 meters of climbing and 750 km of racing against the clock. It is, according to the organisers, the toughest cyclosportive in the world.


The Teapot Trust was set up by Laura and John Young after the death of their daughter Verity from cancer in 2009. They appreciated how art helped Verity during her long stays in hospital and they now realise that art therapy helps the childrens' treatment and recovery. The Teapot Trust operates throughout Scotland and is setting up in Great Ormond Street London and Northern Ireland. Every penny raised from donations goes towards art therapy.
