War Horse Memorial

Michael Crawford CBE

Mane Chance Sanctuary.

Sunday, August 18, 2019.

The legendary entertainer Michael Crawford CBE was the guest of honour at Mane Chance’s Big Family Fun Day, and was joined by hundreds of visitors and supporters for a wonderful afternoon of activities including a purple poppy nature trail, tractor rides, live music and arts and crafts stalls. The real stars of the day were of course the Sanctuary’s herd of rescue horses and ponies, and we are delighted to be supporting Jenny Seagrove (pictured here with Michael Crawford) and her fantastic team with our 2019 Purple Poppy Appeal, which which launches tomorrow in London. Volunteers were joined by staff from Sainsbury’s in Ascot, who provided the Pimm’s Tent, and our special Ambassador, the acclaimed soprano Christina Johnston also came along to join in the fun.
