Harland Miller, ‘I donate to Art on a Postcard each year. They are raising money to eliminate hepatitis C. I’m more than happy to do this as each year they set out their targets, whether it’s getting Westminster or the World Health Assembly to sign up to their program of elimination, each year they let me know they’ve succeeded. I know the money I help them raise is effective in helping them achieve their goals’
Gemma Peppé, Director of Art on a Postcard ‘I’m extremely excited to be holding this year’s secret auction at Unit London which is a fabulous space in central London. Art on a Postcard has blossomed into the best revenue source The Hepatitis C Trust has ever had.. It’s fantastic to be able to combine such a successful and enjoyable event with raising serious money for charity’.
Art on A Postcard is the fundraising arm of The Hepatitis C Trust. The Hepatitis C Trust is working towards eliminating hepatitis C in the UK by 2030. In 2015 our campaigning led to the Scottish Government committing to our program of elimination.
