Christmas Card 2018.

We are delighted to introduce our first official Christmas card to support our chosen charities.

We feel the image truly reflects the two strands of our campaign, namely:

Our magnificent War Horse, Poppy (created by sculptor Susan Leyland), who signifies the service and sacrifice of millions of horses, mules and donkeys in the First World War, and our national Purple Poppy campaign which will, in time, symbolise ways we can all remember that service and sacrifice and use it as a force for good to help military and equine charities.

And what says Christmas better than falling snow and a cheeky robin!

We are selling our card in packs of ten for £6 plus postage and packaging of £2. Each card is approximately 23cms x 18cms x 2cms so they fall into the large letter category.

For orders please email susan@thewarhorsememorial.org

Your support already this year has been truly wonderful so can we be the first to wish you and yours Season’s Greetings from The War Horse Memorial team!

Purple Poppy Pin Badges/Wristbands.

We have completely sold out of purple poppy pin badges but we still have wristbands for a suggested donation of £1. Many of you have said you would like to sell a box for us to raise awareness and funds for our chosen charities, namely The Household Cavalry Foundation; Mane Chance Horse Sanctuary; Brooke World Horse Welfare and The Royal Artillery Foundation. If you are interested please email susan@thewarhorsememorial.org for more details.

Fabric Artist Katherine Alexander

We have been approached by Katherine Alexander who is fabric artist and lives in France and who is keen to support our purple poppy appeal. She has created a beautiful cushion design which she sells for 25 Euros, and will donate 20 per cent of sales to The War Horse Memorial to support our chosen military and equine charities.

The cushions covers are all hand cut, sewn (via machine) with multi layer applique, and free motion embroidery to depict the barbed wire stems. All internal hems are closed using overlock stitching for fray free use.

Katherine accepts PayPal and stripe (visa and MasterCard) for international customers. The finished cushion covers measure 40 x 40 cm. For more information on Katherine and her work please visit dizzycodesigns.com

Silk Scarf

These stylish purple poppy designed scarves are part of a new range from Katherine. They are made from silky satin, backed with a soft warm cosy fleece lining, and finished off with an oyster shell button to keep in place. The cost is £23 / 25 Euros plus postage, of which 20 per cent will be kindly donated to us.

Jersey Pearl Limited Edition Bracelets

Our friends at Jersey Pearl have produced a limited edition purple bracelet to complement the silver/gold coloured bracelets we launch our campaign with last year (both are pictured here). The drop pearl is symbolic; Poppy our War Horse has a teardrop in her eye to remember on the service and sacrifice of millions of horses, mules and donkeys in the First World War, and the pearls reflect this. These lovely bracelets sell for £20 and for details on how you can own one, please email susan@thewarhorsememorial.org

The War Horse Memorial Maquette.

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger bought this sculpture, which is one of only 100 that will be produced, for his wife Annie.

HM The Queen has been given the first maquette and others have been gifted to Downing Street, The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and Ascot Racecourse Authority.

These beautiful maquettes, which are cast in the Black Isle Bronze Foundry in Nairn, in Scotland, and hand finished by the sculptor Susan Leyland, cost £20,000 each.
