WAYS TO SUPPORT OUR MEMORIAL AND CHOSEN CHARITIES

The Memorial forms a catalyst for an on-going fundraising campaign to support military and equine charities after all memorial costs are paid. Our principal beneficiaries will be The Household Cavalry Foundation and the Mane Chance Sanctuary. Other complementary charities will also be supported.

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.

If you are interested in buying what we are sure will become a collector’s item then email us at
susano@thewarhorsememorial.org or telephone 07836 229208

Purple Poppy Pin Badges/Wristbands.

We are selling purple poppy pin badges and wristbands (pictured here) 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.

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
