Our Secret Postcard Auction, in support of veterans’ mental health and World Mental Health Day, will go live to the general public on Friday 6 October 2023. Will you spot the work of your favourite artists and celebrities among the 340+ pieces we have available this year?

Almost 200 professional artists, celebrities and veterans have submitted larger postcard-sized original artwork anonymously to be auctioned online in support of the charity. We’ve got one-off pieces from acclaimed artists such as Hurvin Anderson, Maggi Hambling CBE, Patrick Hughes, Anne Desmett RA, Dave White, Russell Tovey, Kenneth Draper RA, Barnaby Barford, Craig Jefferson, Sue Kreitzman, Alicia Rothman, Luke Frost and Winston Branch to name just a few!

This year, the majority of our postcards are a larger 178mm x 127mm in size, however some postcard dimensions may differ according to the artist's preferred use of medium/materials. All artworks are signed and dated by the artist on verso.
