Paul, who is making the slow recovery back from a brain injury following a fall in 2007, is holding his second one-man show at a community centre in Gillingham.

Paul has decided to hold another auction after the huge success of last time, which raised £400 for Headway.

Paul will auction his paintings at the Sunlight Centre in Richmond Road at 1.30 pm on Wednesday 10th May, with money raised to be donated to the head injuries charity Headway.

Paul, who lives at our Livingstone Road supported living service likes to create still-life portraits of everyday objects.

“People who have had a brain injury like me, I just want to say to them that there is a chance they can get better like I have,” he said.

Livingstone Road service manager, Heather Jupp said Paul had only taken up art in recent years and it was now playing an important role in his life.

“Painting enables him to relax and put any day to day concerns from his mind and helps him concentrate and focus,” said Heather.

“The staff at Livingstone Road have seen a real difference in him as a result and we are all so thrilled for him.

The auction will also include refreshments.
