We are sorry to be losing one of our valuable core volunteers, who is a lone parent, but due to pressures from the DWP for her to take ANY job, she has now become self-employed – 'Mary Jane’s Cleaning Services – Let Me Loose in your Hoose' . Mary Jane said “I hope to take all my years of volunteering and experience gained within Tea in the Pot, to my new venture. The only thing I am disappointed with is that myself and other volunteers at Tea in the Pot are not being recognised or valued by the powers that be, for the service that we provide.

The Govan Tea Pot

It is with great regret that the café project will not be renewing the lease with the Pearce Institute for the café space. The project encountered many Hiccups shall we say, therefore the project management board decided not to continue with the lease however the project is still active. Our pilot venture did give us great feed back from all the functions we carried out regarding our food and our professional approach to each individual event. Below are some of the events carried out by The Govan Tea Pot:-

Survival of the richest?

Would all Teapotters & Agencies that use our services, please use YOUR voice by contacting your local council, councillors, MPs and MSPs regarding Tea in the Pot's fight for survival. Tea in the Pot has been running now for 8 years and is a much needed and very valuable service for Women. One of our members commented recently that it would be "FALSE ECONOMY" if we closed down, due to the pressures this would put on the NHS and mental health agencies who use our services.

Funding !

FUNDING APPLICATION DECLINED: Just another one to add to our list. Tea in the Pot has been used 2043 times in this past year, with numbers constantly increasing since it began in 2005. In today’s financial climate, all groups and charities are struggling, but Tea in the Pot has been in this position since it began, with major donors declining requests for core funding. OXFAM UKPP SCOTLAND has been our main supporter and financial MOTHER and we would not be here today without their continued support.
