The Dallaglio Foundation launches a pop up photographic exhibition with some of the UK's leading celebrities and high achievers to inspire young people and to raise funds for the charity's youth development programme. Created by the legendary English rugby player Lawrence Dallaglio, the Role Model Exhibition is designed to inspire young people, to help them make positive life choices, and to follow their dreams and ambitions.
The cream of British talent from stage, screen and sport including Dame Helen Mirren, Mo Farah, Heston Blumenthal, Sir Paul Smith, Professor Green, Dynamo and British singing duo Rizzle Kicks are just some of the celebrities who have been photographed by world renowned photographer Rick Guest. The unique images will be displayed for a one week exhibition in Carnaby St, London starting on the 1st of October. 'The Role Model Portraits' will feature pictures of these high achievers in exclusive and illuminating ways, presenting them as the Great British role models they are.
Lawrence Dallaglio said: "The exhibition demonstrates everything my foundation stands for. It shows young people that if they are determined, don't give up, and work hard they can accomplish great things. It's our aim to provide the environment to help them achieve their goals. Each of our role models has firsthand experience of just how important the need for hope, determination and such support is within a young person's life. My life has been shaped by a fantastic support network who helped my realize my ambition, and that is what we aim to provide for our young people"
Dynamo said of his involvement in the exhibition: "Success is not dependent on where you come from. I hope that my journey demonstrates that anybody can succeed through hard work, determination and a belief in their abilities. "
Harley Alexander-Sule of Rizzle Kicks said: "What Dallaglio is trying to do here is important. Many kids fall down these days because there are few helping hands to give them the lift they need. I'm proud to be part of this project."
