“‘I’m delighted to support Murphy’s Army
and their Purple Poppy campaign”
Indeed, response to the 2018 Murphy’s Army Purple Poppy Campaign was overwhelming and every single one of our purple poppies sold out which resulted in the amazing amount of over £14,000 being raised for our chosen causes.
Our 2019 Campaign is now underway and we hope you’ll lend your support once again to make this an even greater success.
To everyone who has lent their support thus far, thank you, and to new supporters, welcome – together we will ensure that the contributions made, and continuing to be made by the animals are not forgotten but remembered always.
PLEASE NOTE: THE MURPHY’S ARMY PURPLE POPPY CAMPAIGN IS IN NO WAY CONNECTED TO OR AFFILIATED WITH THE RBL OR IT’S POPPY APPEAL
The Horse Trust
‘At our Home of Rest for Horses in Buckinghamshire we specialise in providing retirement and respite for working horses that have served our nation in the police or military. We also provide retirement for ponies who have worked with charities that improve the lives of disabled or disadvantaged children by giving them the chance to ride or care for these wonderful animals. Because of the facilities we have here, we are also able to provide sanctuary to some of the worst cases of cruelty or neglect – horses, ponies and donkeys that are in desperate need of specialist care.’

Murphy, a Siberian husky, was stolen in December 2014 and safely reunited with his owners some three months later. The team, drawn together by his absence, pledged to continue and help other owners whose pets were missing. In June the following year we were granted charity status with the mission of helping reunite pets with their owners, raising pet theft awareness and promoting pet safety, welfare and care.

The third and final beneficiary of the 2019 Murphy’s Army Purple Poppy campaign is Smokey Paws.
Smokey Paws are a not for profit organisation who provide life-saving pet resuscitation equipment to Emergency Services throughout the UK.
Their oxygen masks are specifically designed to provide essential care to pets on the scene of a house fire.
They aim to ensure that pets are given the best possible chance of survival, saving as many lives as possible.
