Our Charity

Art in the Heart supports the Kidneeds charity, in order to help local boy Alex Gibbs from Peterborough. He has a rare & incurable kidney disease called Dense Deposit Disease(DDD) and and before his transplant relied on dialysis treatment three times a week in Nottingham.

Although Alex has enjoyed respite from his new kidney, it is uncertain how long this one will last because of the disease.

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 art gallery and gift shop, 13 Westgate Arcade, Queensgate, Peterborough. You can also donate here by linking into the Kidneeds page.  We also raise money through our events and exhibitions.
