Art on a Postcard is the brainchild of Gemma Peppe who had hepatitis C for 14 years before she was diagnosed and then another 12 years before she was cured. She first got involved with The Hepatitis C Trust when she was researching her 2006 documentary Louie Me and Hepatitis C. Her background in music and film provided a foundation from which to fundraise for The Hepatitis C Trust. Since being cured and regaining her energy Gemma worked full time developing 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’. Gemma Peppe, Director of Art on a Postcard
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’.
