A glowing tribute
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.”
