Mr Benn teapot by David McKee
A number of celebrities, illustrators and artists have been 'going potty' and decorating teapots in support of the Willow Foundation's Piece of Cake fund raising campaign this June. Piece of Cake, in association with McVitie's Jamaica Ginger Cake, encourages people across the UK to hold a tea party for the charity - at home, at school, at work - with friends, family or work colleagues.

The small teapots (10.5cm high x 18.5cm long approx) have been created in association with the Pottery House Café based in Hove. As well as the one-off creations by celebrities and artists, a selection of teapots have been donated from London's leading hotels, best known for afternoon tea.
The teapots will be auctioned on-line from 25th June to 5th July - marking the end of the charity's Piece of Cake campaign and helping to raise valuable funds that will help the charity to provide special days for many more seriously ill 16 to 40 year olds.
