Dreweatts were so pleased to be working with Art on a Postcard once again, hosting their Winter Auction. We are delighted that we were able to help them raise £75k for the invaluable work of The Hepatitis C Trust.
This was a timed online auction which ran from 5-19 November. With 230 artists taking part this year, the auction featured a remarkable array of works by outstanding contemporary artists, offering a wonderful opportunity to bid on and own a mini masterpiece.
The auction focused on the Hepatitis C Trust helpline which is staffed entirely by people who have had hepatitis C. The helpline has become a key component in the current Infected Blood Inquiry, the largest public enquiry in British history, which was launched to investigate why infected blood products were being used to treat NHS patients prior to 1992. The number of calls from people who have received infected blood during transfusion and subsequently been misdiagnosed for years only to find that they have cirrhosis or liver cancer have snowballed and keeping up is increasingly difficult.
We look forward to working with Art on a Postcard in 2021... stay tuned for more details.
