Children of the Warrington Meeting have helped create a striking postcard to raise awareness the millions of animals who continue to suffer and die as a result of warfare.
The eight children, together with Warrington Friend Diane Furber, a member of Quaker Concern for Animals, worked in a creative collaboration with painter Ann Johnson of Eastbourne Meeting. Ann collaged the drawings onto her painting of purple poppies and the resulting mixed media artwork has been made into a postcard.
The Purple Poppy of remembrance was launched in 2006 by Animal Aid to commemorate these animals. Ann has kindly offered to send me some of the postcards which I shall deliver to our Meeting.
