Art On A Postcard debuts Christmas Shop at The London Illustration Fair, Christmas 2015,
featuring work by Camille Walala, Inkie, John Burgerman and Thierry Noir
The Hepatitis C Trust’s ‘Art On A Postcard’ will make its debut at The London Illustration Fair this December with a Postcard Lottery and its first ever Christmas Shop, both featuring works of art by Camille Walala, Inkie, John Burgerman and Thierry Noir.
The shop will be a perfect place for unique and original gifts, featuring work from artists that include Rowan Newton, Simone Lia, Danny O’Connor, Hayden Kayes and Harland Miller. The shop will sell stocking fillers and other great Christmas presents like badges, fridge magnets, tote bags, phone covers and packs of Christmas cards, as well as an exclusive ‘Best of’ box set featuring 80 artworks by some of our favourite contributing artists. Art on a Postcard has also collaborated with Jealous Prints to make beautiful A3 prints from some of this year’s best postcards.
The Art on a Postcard Postcard Lottery will also return, consisting of 150 original and postcard-size artworks from other contributors such Rugman, Shuby and Robert Hunter. A £50 lottery ticket guarantees a postcard and also offers the very small odds of a one in one hundred and fifty chance of winning a valuable and unique one off work of art.
Launched in 2014, Art on a Postcard raises money for the Hepatitis C Trust.
Charles Gore, CEO of The Hepatitis C Trust, explains ‘we believe we can eliminate hepatitis C over the next 15 years if we are able to continue the vital work we do. Our plan is to close the charity and put us out jobs. Our Art on a Postcard campaign has been extremely beneficial in driving the Trust towards this goal. We are very grateful to the generous and on-going support we receive from artists.’

Notes To Editors
About hepatitis C
An estimated 214,000 people in the UK live with hepatitis C although only half of those are diagnosed. New drugs are becoming available with better cure rates but awareness is dangerously low. If nothing is done about rates of diagnoses and treatment there will be a 30% rise in deaths from decompensated cirrhosis and liver cancer due to the hepatitis C virus by 2025. Unlike other cancers, liver cancer is one of the few cancers which is on the rise in the UK.
About The Hepatitis C Trust
The Hepatitis C Trust is the only UK-wide charity focused on hepatitis C, supporting the estimated 214,000 people living with the virus and those at risk of infection. It is led and driven by people with personal experience of hepatitis C. The Trust is committed to increasing prevention, diagnosis and treatment and achieves this by raising awareness, driving policy and providing testing, training and support. http://www.hepctrust.org.uk/
