“Art saves my life everyday”

When artist Alex Echo was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, he found art was a way to focus on the moment and forget about his worries. 

That’s why he’s designed a new range of homewares and kids’ T-shirts with Next. And 100% of the profits are going to Parkinson’s UK. Find out more about Alex and explore our partnership with Next.
