From Jo Randall, Newport:

Animal Aid purple poppies are being sold at Love Running in Nodehill again to commemorate all the animals of the world affected by human conflict.

All proceeds go to the ongoing work of Animal Aid (AA).

The Isle of Wight is now the only place in the whole country with the old-style fabric purple poppies, as AA has now moved over to enamel badges but we had such a large quantity of the old ones they gave us permission to keep selling.
