Nicholas said: “It’s always been important to me to operate ethically and find innovative ways through what I do to support causes close to my heart. I’ve been a member of BaP for several years and donated pieces for auctions in the past. I wanted to find a new way to support the charity, hence the development of the Expressions Collection.”

Val Huxley, CEO of People against Poverty said: “We’re immensely grateful to Nic for his commitment to our charity. We work hard to develop strong, personal relationships with our business community and this is a perfect example of our reciprocal ethos. The Expressions Collection is stunning. I would urge people to pop into his Bath and Bristol shops to take a look.”
