A foundation which helps people in need has teamed up with a Dorset artist to celebrate everyday heroes at Camp Bestival.

Dorset Community Foundation, which provides help for less fortunate residents and small charities across the county, will host a stand at the family- friendly festival with artist Stuart Semple.

The theme of the stand, 'Stuart Semple's Superheroes', is a tribute to the everyday 'heroes' in our lives such as parents, grandparents, friends and pets. The theme fits with the work of the foundation, which supports groups often run by 'superhero' volunteers who give up their time to support others.

Activities available at the Stuart Semple’s Superheroes stand, which will be located in field 2, will include superhero magic board writing, medal and mask making sessions. Stuart has also created a limited edition ‘reddest red’ powder paint which will be available from the stand.

Stuart himself will be attending the festival and running some of the sessions on Saturday, July 28.

He said: "I’m very excited to be involved in this initiative which will inspire kids to recognise and reflect on the superheroes in their lives and also raise donations for Dorset Community Foundation, a local charity that does amazing work to support people in need across the county."

Bournemouth artist Stuart, whose works have appeared worldwide, was honoured by the UN with a 'Happiness Hero' medal in recognition for his ‘HappyCloud’ performance from Tate Modern in London. He says he "finds joy in bringing people together through art."

Stuart is also the founder of Culture Hustle - a fast growing art materials brand. He will be coming down with a team from the brand who say they are "excited to show everyone at Camp Bestival the colourist colours, including his signature pinkest pink."

Cash raised from the activities and the powder paint will support Dorset Community Foundation.
