After trying The Botanist’s new bar menu last night, I popped into The Sloane Club to take a look at the High Profiles exhibition, which aims to raise funds for the Renton Foundation.
The Renton Foundation is a charity initiative set up by Mencap to offer leisure opportunities for people with learning disabilities.
Caroline Stanley, a trustee of the Renton Foundation and the daughter of its founder Lord Renton, is showcasing 35 bas-relief portrait profiles of many known faces – including Renton Foundation’s Patron Norma Major and Earl Cadogan.
When Lord Renton died at the age of 98 in 2007, he was the longest serving Parliamentarian ever. But it was the impact of his daughter Davina, who had Rett’s syndrome (a neurological disorder), that sparked a long devotion to the cause of those with learning disabilities.
The exhibition which is shared with three other artists: David Welsh, Hugh Dunford Wood and Rod Friend, is only running for two days and so ends today: 6th November 2012.
If you are interested in popping along too, the exhibition will be open from 6pm – 9pm at The Sloane Club, 52 Lower Sloane Street, Chelsea, London, SW1W 8BS.
