Call to light up red for remembrance
Poppyscotland is looking to ‘Light Up Red’ the whole of Scotland this year, including Kintyre. The charity is calling on mass involvement from schools, churches, council buildings, monuments, statues and landmarks to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War by putting a red gel filter on any external lighting they have from November 5 to November 11. Gordon Michie, head of fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: ‘It’s fantastic to know that Scotland will be lighting up red once again for the Scottish Poppy Appeal, and we continue to be amazed by the country’s support. We have already received the support of around 50 landmarks that will Light Up Red, but we want even more to join this exciting project.’ Go to the Light Up Red centenary campaign at poppyscotland.org.uk/ light-up-red to find out more.
