THE ROSSENDALE Trust will present an ex­hi­bi­tion of art by one of its found­ing mem­bers.

Work by Alan Chap­man will go on dis­play at Sut­ton St James Scout Hut. Alan was one of the founders of the char­ity on Hollin lane which sup­ports adults with learn­ing dis­abil­i­ties.

Alan and his wife Mary started the trust 40 years ago with Bar­bara and Ernie Hyde, as a nurs­ery for dis­abled chil­dren. After many years the trust be­came a home where adults with dis­abil­i­ties could live in­de­pen­dently.

Amy Sim­cox, from the trust, said: “Alan first be­came in­ter­ested in paint­ing as a re­lax­ing al­ter­na­tive to work and his love of paint­ing con­tin­ued through­out a busy ca­reer and fam­ily life.

“He has had sev­eral exhibitions in aid of East Cheshire Hospice and the Rossendale Trust, and has also had his paint­ings ex­hib­ited at gal­leries in­clud­ing Cas­tle Gallery Mac­cles­field, Manch­ester Art house and the the­atre by the Lake in Keswick.”

His ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture lo­cal and na­tional scenes and all paint­ings are avail­able to buy.

The ex­hi­bi­tion opens on Fri­day from 6.30pm to 8.30pm with wine and nib­bles and con­tin­ues on Satur­day from 10am to 1pm and Sun­day, from 11am to 2pm.

The event is free but pro­ceeds will be do­nated to The Rossendale Trust.
