Art in the Heart supports the Kidneeds charity in order to help local boy Alex Gibbs from Werrington, Peterborough. He has a rare and incurable kidney disease called Dense Deposit Disease(DDD) and has relied on dialysis treatment. Recently Alex had a kidney transplant which gives him much needed respite but unfortunately this new kidney will most likely not last and Alex will be back on dialysis.
Kidneeds is an international charity which was set up to fund research into finding a cure for DDD, a disease mainly affecting children. The charity is completely non-profit making and is run by volunteers. All associated administration costs are met by a private sponsor, so that 100% of all donations go straight into funding the research. Be assured that any donation you give will go straight to helping Alex and other children with DDD.
There is a charity box in our gallery and shop, 47 Bridge Street Peterborough with more information about the charity. You can also donate from the Art in the Heart by linking into the Kidneeds page. We also support the charity through the sale of good quality mosaic art kits. Alex’s ‘Auntie Tracey’ happens to be the successful mosaic artist, Tracey Cartledge. Tracey in additon to her own fine art pieces, produces a range of mosaic kits so that people can enjoy producing their own work of art. These kits are available to buy in our shop and we donate all profits from these sales to the charity. We also sell bags of sweets.
We are delighted that Julie Gibbs Alex’s mother, trained primary school teacher joins our sales team every Wednesday on a voluntary basis.
