SI Glasgow City to raise funds for the ‘Teapot Trust’

At the Club meeting on 15 May 2019, Presidents Christine and Fiona asked that members raise funds for the ‘Teapot Trust’ https://www.teapot-trust.org/ during their year of office.
The Teapot Trust is a Scottish charity providing a UK wide programme of art therapy and creative interventions in hospitals, to support the wellbeing of children and young people with chronic conditions and their families. Over the next year, members will organise a ‘tea party’ using a blue china teapot, attendees will give a donation for the refreshments and photos will be shared on the Club’s website and Facebook pages.

As you can see, the blue teapot has had its first outing and we raised £35!! Well done May for organising the get together.
Where will the teapot go next…see the photos for updates!

Afternoon tea party held in Cardonald in July to support the Teapot Trust. We didn’t manage to get  the official teapot, so we had to improvise with an Eternal Beau teapot instead. Sandwiches, cake, scones and prosecco were enjoyed by all and £50 was raised.
