David Morgan, design engineer and entrepreneur of Next Mile Limited is our 2014 sponsor. Previously at Marshall Aerospace, Ransomes and as a Program Manager at BE Aerospace, he is now engaged in his own future generation technology and investment projects.

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 previously relied on dialysis treatment. Recently Alex had a kidney transplant which gives him much needed respite but unfortunately this new kidney my 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.
Art in the Heart also supports the charity through the sale of its annual calendar, sweets and profits from other events of ours.
Alex’s ‘Auntie Tracey’ also happens to be the successful mosaic artist, Tracey Cartledge. Tracey in addition 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 are delighted that Julie Gibbs Alex’s mother, trained primary school teacher joins our sales team every Wednesday on a voluntary basis.
