The nationally acclaimed actress Joanna Lumley was the focus of piece as stars such as Elaine Paige and Ainsley Harriott were in attendance to support the Jack Petchey Back to Work Fund for the Stroke Association last night.

Frances, who has been commissioned to create sculptures for the Queen, the Prince of Wales and Boris Johnson, said it was a ‘dream come true’ to work with Lumley in support of the Stroke Association.

“This exhibition represents my lifetime’s work and I am immensely proud to be exhibiting at the Tower of London,” said Frances.

“Having Joanna Lumley sit for me is an absolute dream come true, her presence helps raise awareness for the incredible work the Stroke Association does to support those whose lives have been devastated by stroke.”
