“I’m delighted to support Murphy’s Army
and their Purple Poppy campaign”
PLEASE NOTE: THE MURPHY’S ARMY PURPLE POPPY CAMPAIGN IS IN NO WAY CONNECTED TO OR AFFILIATED WITH THE RBL OR ITS POPPY APPEAL
The NFRSA also helps the existing local charities who have already been working incredibly hard to provide this vital support, by promoting their work and sign-posting those who need help, or would like to offer help, to the established organisations.

For 136 years The Horse Trust’s Home of Rest for Horses has specialised in providing retirement and respite for working horses and ponies. These hard-working equine public servants have served our nation in the Police, the Army or with charities which use horses to help people
We also provide sanctuary to horses, ponies and donkeys who have suffered from cruelty or neglect and who are in desperate need of specialist treatment and care. More information about our work can be found at horsetrust.org.uk

Launched in 2022 this is a very special fund from which we hope to create a memorial for Service animals. As helping them in retirement remains our priority, only a small proportion of funds raised will go towards this. We will of course keep you posted as it builds…

The purple poppy is a symbol of remembrance for animals lost in Service but was little known until Murphy’s Army launched our Purple Poppy Campaign back in 2016. We felt that it was only right that the animals should be remembered, alongside their human counterparts, and thus our journey to inform and educate began. We remember not only the animals lost, but pay tribute to those who serve us today – working alongside our Emergency Services, in the Military, Prisons and Border Forces – keeping us safe in so many different ways…read more
