BUILDINGS in the region will be lit up this weekend for the Scottish Poppy Appeal.

Dumfries and Galloway Ccouncil HQ in English Street, Dumfries; Drumlanrig Castle (above); and the Ewart Library, also in Dumfries, will join 120 other Scottish landmarks glowing red for Poppyscotland in a wonderfully modern display Remembrance

Members of the public are being encouraged to take pictures of their local landmarks lit up red and to then share them on social media, [email protected] and using the hashtags #LightUpRed #BehindThemAlways and#ScottishPoppyAppeal.

Gordon Michie, from Poppyscotland, said: “We want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone supporting this campaign. We are touched by the effort that hundreds of people have made in order to make this happen and to help us to shine a light on those who continue to need Poppyscotland’svital, life-changing support today.”

Mr Michie added: “It is incredible to witness so many buildings, up and down the country, glowing red in tribute to Scotland’s Armed Forces community past and present. It is a visual spectacle symbolising that when it comes to the country’s Service personnel, we are behind them. Always.”
