Joy Riders 1, a black-and-white photographic print by Ron Rafaelli, showing the rock star Jimi Hendrix, with girlfriend, while on holiday in Hawaii in 1968. The photograph is part of an exhibition which has toured the world during the last two years. Celebrating the life of Jimi Hendrix (1942-1970), and comprising 170 screenprints, lithographs, original posters and photographs, the exhibition is now being auctioned on Monday 20 December, at Bonhams, in London, in aid of Heart 'n' Soul, a charity involved in theatre and performance for people with learning disabilities.

The auction lots, with estimated prices ranging from pounds 50, include work by photographers and artists including Dezo Hoffman, Jim Marshall, Chuck Boys, Linda McCartney and Gered Mankowitz. Hendrix said of Hawaii: 'Hawaii is the place. I smashed my car up there in a 50mph zone. I got hurt real bad, my face got scratched.' For information about the auction, contact Bonhams, Montpelier Street, London SW7 1HH, telephone 071-584 9161.

Heart 'n' Soul, founded in 1986, has changed from a small workshop into a theatre group of 10 performers with learning disabilities, as well as two musicians who are blind. The performances are mainly self-devised musicals about how they, as outsiders, see the world; the music ranges from soul and ballads to rock. It now offers technical and musical training courses to people with disabilities, so that they can broaden their skills and apply them in the theatre.
