Peo­ple in East Kil­bride have been do­ing their bit to sup­port Poppy Scot­land this year – as the coun­try pre­pares to com­mem­o­rate 100 years since the end of hos­til­i­ties in the First World War.

East Kil­bride Rotary Club has been busy re­cruit­ing vol­un­teers to help col­lect for the char­ity at Mor­risons and Sains­burys super­mar­kets in the town.

Poppy co-or­di­na­tor Roddy Shanks said: “The sup­port of the shop­pers has been fan­tas­tic and many thou­sands of pop­pies have been handed out with do­na­tions mount­ing up.

“If you are vis­it­ing any of these stores over the next few days, make sure to say hello and get your poppy.

“I am so grate­ful to all the vol­un­teers for giv­ing their time and also the stores man­age­ment and staff for there help.”

The vol­un­teers will be col­lect­ing un­til Satur­day.
