Charity’ is a 20 foot bronze sculpture based on The Spastics Society (now Scope) collection boxes commonly found outside local chemists in the 1960s and 1970s. Intended as an outdoor sculpture, the paint layered over the bronze will decay with time. Since Spring 2011 she has been installed on the balcony of the Royal West of England Society’s stunning Grade II listed building, opposite the Victoria Rooms’ statue of Edward VIII.

‘Charity’ will be exhibited until May 2012, for more information please visit www.rwa.org.uk
