THE ALEXA JUMPER
This month’s hero piece is our Alexa Jumper, a bold, cobalt blue chunky knit jumper featuring shoulder and elbow patches. The Alexa takes its name from Alexa’s Animals, a small charity based in the heart of rural Northumberland. I am incredibly proud to announce that 5% of the sale of this jumper will be donated to the charity.
Alnwick-based Alexa’s Animals was founded by Alexa Nisbet MBE in 1991. Aided by a band of dedicated dog lovers, the rescue has helped over 1,600 dogs find their forever homes. The charity has recently obtained their own premises, enabling them to continue their vital work of caring for abused and neglected dogs in the North East of England.
All of the jumpers in my new collection are named after beloved family pets, and growing up surrounded by dogs, the rescue of abandoned and abused animals has always been incredibly close to my heart. The chance to support local Alnwick charity Alexa’s Animals in their tireless work to find forever homes for man’s best friend is a pleasure, and Alexa herself is a great inspiration, having been awarded an MBE for services to animal rescue.
