From all corners of the country… from Aberdeen to Torbay, from Tarporley to Canterbury – and towns and villages in between – you have been showing your respect for animals in war and support for animals in need by wearing your purple poppies, and by decorating school halls, church memorials and shop windows. Despite these challenging times we have been overwhelmed by your generosity; sales of our pin badges have never been better and the introduction of knitted purple poppies, made by kind-hearted folk both in the UK and the Commonwealth have been a real success. Our promise to you is that every penny from our Animal Purple Poppy Fund goes to support our chosen charities. Here is just a selection of the photos you have sent so far, but please keep sending in them in so that we can share with our volunteers and supporters. Thank you.
Our grateful thanks to Zeta the black labrador; the team at Rase Vetinary Centre, Market Rasen; Saffron (8) and three-year old Juniper from Aberdeen; Alistar King and Anna at Cotebrook Shire Horse Centre, in Cheshire; Sarah Lockton and the team at Torbay and District Funeral Partners; Ricky Fenwick and Rupert; Rue Clarke and the children and staff of Green Park School; Tez Shiels-Barrett and John Bishop Chairman of Canterbury Branch Royal Artillery Association and colleague Peter Hughes; Kirk and Hannah Petrakis with their horse, Annie.
