The sad news is that our plans to launch the Purple Poppy Appeal 2020 have had to be shelved due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The good news is that we have found another way to bring our cause right into your homes…thanks to the magic of YouTube and the generosity of our celebrity friends. On Monday, June 8 at 8pm we will be screening a special, virtual Purple Poppy Concert. Our compere will be TV presenter and former Strictly winner, Chris Hollins, and it will feature well-loved artists and performers, including Britain’s Got Talent favourite Colin Thackery, actress Jenny Seagrove, soprano Christina Johnston and many others. They have all given their time and talents for free, and are recording their performances under strict social distancing guidelines. You will be able to join in for free – this is a concert open to all our Ambassadors, supporters – and animal lovers everywhere!. However, throughout the hour-long performance at the bottom of the screen we will display ways YOU can donate to the Appeal so WE can help our chosen charities, which are listed below. ALL the money we raise will go to those good causes. Animal charities particularly are struggling to keep afloat during these challenging times; we have to help them survive. After all, for centuries animals have give us service and sacrifice, love, loyalty and companionship without asking for anything in return. If ever there was a time to return the favour, we believe, this is it.
Please keep watching this space… we are setting up the links and details and will be able to share with you soon. Meanwhile please click on SHOP here to pre- order your purple poppy pin badge or other merchandise. Thank You.
