William does art at an Edinburgh Open Group session

William is an eleven-year-old from Angus who has been using Teapot Trust services for four years. William has been coping with juvenile arthritis for five years now, and frequently visits Ediburgh’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children.

He feels different to the other children, and sometimes feels left out, especially when he can’t join in activities; “sometimes my joints hurt quite a lot and I can’t join in all of the sports.” Other children can be unkind when they don’t understand William’s condition, and he finds that the art sessions help him.

“I feel quite satisfied after doing art and I even feel a bit stronger. I feel a bit more confident.”

William’s favourite thing to do with Teapot Trust is model clay; “It takes my mind off all the needles and things. When the Teapot Trust are there I don’t really worry about my appointments. I just really want to do art.” When William visited hospital and Teapot Trust was not there, he noticed a big difference: “I kind of felt quite down because theyweren’t there and I didn’t look forward to my appointments because I couldn’t do art. With it being there I think it is quite a good thing because it encourages me to go.”

Teapot Trust provided over 6,000 art therapy interactions to children like William last year, but we now need your help to enable us to continue to provide art therapy to support more children like William. Please DONATE NOW to our urgent appeal and help all of the children who use our services. You can donate until 31st March 2019 using Virgin Money Giving, by cheque or by bank transfer.
