This summer Staffy B Homestore - based in Baldock's High Street - has launched a new charity foundation to raise money for dogs in need of a helping paw.
On Saturday, the lifestyle boutique revealed a new range of items to mark the Blacknose Foundation project – all inspired by the Staffy B’s mascot Freddie the Staffordshire bull terrier, aka Blacknose.
On offer were candles and diffusers in a range of scents based on Freddie’s favourite things – unique, beach and meadows.
So who is Freddie?
Loving owners Toni and Hayley said that rescue dog Freddie was stopped constantly to be admired and stroked.
That could be on walkies through local woods, paddling on the beaches of Salcombe or Norfolk, or just being hip along the streets of Shoreditch and Brighton.
The new range includes ethically-sourced Indian textiles with a cheeky Blacknose twist will be transformed into aprons and tea towels, along with many other exclusive items.
And here’s the really important bit – 10 per cent of every purchase from the Blacknose range will go in to the foundation to help support rehoming centres and dog charities including Glendee Dog Rescue and Senior Staffy Club Rescue.
Staffy B owner Hayley Moore says: “When Freddie left us for the big kennel in the sky, we knew we had to do something in his name.”
Co-owner Toni Moore added: “He was a rescue dog and was adored not just by us, but by everyone who met him over the last 13 years. His fan club ranged from babies to pensioners and we even named the shop after him!”
The launch has raised £784 for the Blacknose Foundation – follow @BlacknoseF on Twitter to find out more.
