A glow­ing trib­ute

Perthshire Advertiser - - FRONT PAGE -

Scone Palace is join­ing a host of Scot­land’s most fa­mous build­ings, struc­tures and sculp­tures in light­ing up Poppy red to raise aware­ness for the an­nual fundrais­ing cam­paign run by Pop­pyscot­land.

The palace will glow red ev­ery night un­til Novem­ber 12 in a pow­er­ful and vis­ual show of sup­port for the Scot­tish Poppy Ap­peal.

Gor­don Michie, Head of Fundrais­ing at Pop­pyscot­land, said:“It’s fan­tas­tic to see Scot­land light­ing up red once again for the Scot­tish Poppy Ap­peal, and we’ve been blown away by the coun­try’s sup­port.

“We hope that when peo­ple see a won­der­ful iconic struc­ture like Scone Palace glow­ing red over the Re­mem­brance week­end they will think about the many ways they, too, can go the ex­tra mile in their sup­port for this year’s Poppy Ap­peal.

“Whether it’s putting a lit­tle bit more in the Poppy tin, or do­ing some­thing com­pletely dif­fer­ent to raise money, ev­ery penny helps us to of­fer life-chang­ing sup­port so we can be there when they call for backup.”
