HELP - Jim's Story

Monday 21st November

- Friday 30th December

HELP - Jim's Story  exhibition at the Festival Drayton Centre

This is a posthumous exhibition of the work of Captain James Simpson RN, known as “Jim”.

In 2020 Jim's family, friends and colleagues were left shocked and completely devastated when he tragically took his own life. Jim had shown no indication that his mental health was suffering.

Jim often painted as a way of relaxing using a variety of media including pencil, acrylic and oil. His inspiration being the countryside and the sea.

HELP-Jim’s Story has been set up by Jim's family and friends who are driven to raise awareness and understanding around mental health to prevent another person suffering as Jim did, and another family having to deal with such devastation to their lives.
