About The Hepatitis C Trust

The Hepatitis C Trust is the national charity for people with hepatitis C. It is a patient-led and patient-run organisation; most of its board, staff and volunteers have had hepatitis C themselves. It is committed to eliminating hepatitis C in the UK by 2030.

Its strategy is based around pillars of better prevention, increased diagnosis, and treatment for all. It has established strong partnership models of working with substance misuse and homeless service providers across the UK. In substance misuse services, it delivers staff training, peer-led education about the importance of testing and availability of new treatments, and personal one- to-one support from initial diagnosis through to treatment. It runs a range of support services, including a confidential national helpline run by staff and trained volunteers, all with personal experience of living with hepatitis C.

About Fabal Lager

At Fabal, we know our grains to our grist and in seeking to create the ultimate, artisanal, English Lager we use an innovative blend of pressed and malted barleys for a delicate balance of malt sweetness and malt dryness. 

Our classic English lager is about luxury that doesn’t cost the earth and embedded in the fabric of everything we do, is the traditional makers’ ethos of ‘do it once and do it well’.

That means that while we will never scrimp on the quality of our ingredients, we respect our environment and through recycling, repurposing and mindful sourcing, we produce our beers sustainably. Fabal is created in it’s totality from only English ingredients and suppliers, including Archer hops from Worcestershire, malted barley from the Warminster Malt Loft and pressed barley and glass from Yorkshire.

We are delighted to be supporting Art on a Postcard. By celebrating the incredible artists and crafts people behind the platform, we hope to shine a light on the brewers and maltsters who bring their skill and craft to our beer.
