20/20 Productions #LightUpRed for the Scottish Poppy Appeal
Each year buildings and landmarks across the country show their support for the Scottish Poppy Appeal in a thoroughly modern way, by lighting up red in the run up to Remembrance Day. Last year, as part of the commemorations of the Centenary of the end of the First World War, almost 200 locations ‘Lit Up’, including The Royal and Ancient Clubhouse in St Andrews, Rosslyn Chapel, Turnberry Lighthouse, and many other unique and interesting locations (a wind farm, a phone box, an airport, a crane, a hospital and some goat!) and also 20/20 Productions HQ here in Edinburgh.
We will be showing our support this year by lighting our building red from the 23rd October to the 11th November.
If you have a building with external lighting and can get hold of red gel filters for those lights, then why not help Poppyscotland Remember Together and illuminate your premises red from 4th until 11th November. The charity is calling on mass involvement from schools, churches, council buildings, monuments, statues and landmarks.
Gordon Michie, Head of Fundraising at Poppyscotland, said:
“It is wonderful to know that Scotland will be lighting up red once again for this year’s Poppy Appeal, and we continue to be touched by the country’s support. It is so striking and poignant to witness buildings up and down the country glowing red in tribute to Scotland’s Armed Forces community past and present.”
