In 2018 Heart Research UK raised £43,000 from its first anonymous heART Project, an online art auction featuring one-off pieces from international artists and celebrities.
Following this success, the charity is doing it again this year on eBay, in October.
Contributors paint or sketch on an A5 postcard, then name the piece and sign on the reverse. Bidders will be unaware who created which piece, although a list of all contributors will be available and so far these include John Wragg, Ray Richardson, Stephen Whatcott, Andrew Macara, Lily Greenwood, Paul Insect (whose whole exhibition was snapped up by Damien Hirst recently), Hayden Kays, Gina Par and James Faure Walker, as well as celebrities like Miriam Margoyles, Tony Robinson and Jim Moir. All money raised from the auction will fund pioneering medical research projects.
