Purple Poppy Garland.
Monday, August 20th, 2018.
This garland of purple poppies has been made of more than a hundred individual knitted poppies, sent to us from all over the UK and the Commonwealth for Poppy, our War Horse, to wear in remembrance of the millions of horses, mules and donkeys who gave service and sacrifice in the First World War. It will be placed around her neck in a simple ceremony in Ascot tomorrow ( Monday, August 20th, 2018) in readiness for the first National Purple Poppy Day on Thursday ( August 23rd, 2018). It’s still not too late to show your support by buying one of our pin badges or bracelets which sell for a suggested donation of £1. Details from firstname.lastname@example.org
