Secret Postcard Sale
100 beautiful postcards, 1 great cause
The Made in Essex Secret Postcard Sale is an annual fundraiser featuring 100 beautiful postcard-sized mini masterpieces created by the best local artists around, along with some big national celebs too, including Rob Ryan, Phill Jupitus, Jo Brand and Russell Brand.
The 100 postcard creations are all exhibited for a week at Emma Bell's wonderful gallery '70 The Broadway' in Leigh, and 100 Golden Tickets go on sale on the day the exhibition opens, sold on a first come first served basis (and they fly out the door!).
Those lucky enough to bagsy a Golden Ticket are guarenteed one of the beautiful postcards, allocated at random, so it's a lovely surprise which one is received and who created it.
It's a real feast for the eyes, and it's all for a wonderful cause too, with all the money raised going straight to Metal's Netpark Wellbeing and their amazing local project providing art classes for people living with dementia.
The first sale in January 2019 raised over £2k and the second in March 2020 raised £3k, which has made a real difference to the project, and in turn a real difference to the lives of some local people living with dementia. Thank you so much to everyone who's been involved in the event so far - all the wonderful artists who've donated a beautiful creation and all the wonderful Golden Ticket buyers.
