Pegasus Jewellery is delighted to unveil the Purple Poppy Pin, to commemorate service animals lost in conflict and funds for the Racehorse Sanctuary
Pegasus Jewellery was founded on a love of everything to do with horses as well as designing beautiful jewellery. So it’s no surprise that the brand has decided to support a horsey charity with its latest product launch. The Purple Poppy Pin is a stunning lapel pin designed in collaboration with talented Scottish artist Val Macadam. It reflects the idea of wearing a purple poppy during remembrance time to show respect for the animals who lost their lives during man-made conflicts around the world. Many people choose to wear a purple poppy alongside the traditional red poppy in memory of the soldiers who lost their lives in conflicts past.
The Purple Poppy is crafted from a purple glitter enamel. They are available for £10.00 and measure 2cm by 1.5cm. Making it the perfect pin to wear on your coat throughout autumn or add to a dress for special occasions. Buying a Purple Poppy Pin will not only signify respect for animals lost in conflict, it will also help to support a UK-based equestrian charity helping horses in need of a helping hand today. Pegasus have announced that £5.00 from the sale of every single Purple Poppy Pin will go directly to the Racehorse Sanctuary. In order to help them continue their important work with ex racehorses.
Life after racing
Approximately 7000 horses leave the UK racing industry every year. Some are lucky to find good homes straight away. But unfortunately others have an uncertain future. Graham Oldfield and Sue Collins set up The Racehorse Sanctuary in 2005. Horses come to them to enjoy a quieter life in the tranquil West Sussex countryside. The charity is funded solely by generous donations, both from the general public and money raised from fundraising events. In order to help them retrain and rehome racehorses. The charity also runs the Peter O’Sullevan High Dependency Unit. Which is specifically for the small percentage of horses who can never be rehomed. Which gives them a secure and safe home for life.
