Clitheroe Royal Grammar School Sixth Form student Naomi White will hold an exhibition to promote the work of local established artists and art students in aid of The Solomon Project, a feeding programme for children in Eldoret, Kenya.

Naomi (17), of Barrow, is hoping to raise over £3,000 to help at least 200 children involved in the project who are living in poverty, with many of them residents of the city’s rubbish dumps.

The exhibition will take place on Sunday, November 20th at The Grand in York Street, Clitheroe. Visitors are invited to browse throughout the day, from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m., with entry free of charge but with the opportunity to donate to the project and postcards and prints of some of the works on show will be available to buy.

Tickets are £10 each for the evening event, taking place from 7 p.m. Entrance includes wine and canapés and the opportunity for guests to browse the art on show and speak to any of the artists present about their work.

An auction of some of the original pieces will be held, with a percentage of all proceeds going towards the Solomon Project and all profit from the event will also go to the charity.

Tickets are available from The Grand box office on 01200 421599 and more information is available by visiting: www.thegrandvenue.co.uk/event/solomon-arts-show
