Call to light up red for re­mem­brance

Campbeltown Courier - - NEWS -

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.
