Glasgow landmarks will be glowing red this weekend in support of the Scottish Poppy Appeal.

To commemorate the Centenary of the end of the First World War, buildings large and small will 'Light Up Red' in a collective display of thanks.

Across the city, Kelvingrove Art Gallery; The Science Centre; Titan Crane, Clydebank; The Gilbert Scott Building Tower at the University of Glasgow; SSE Hydro; Tron Theatre; Kelvinside Hillhead Parish Church; Kelvinside Academy; Scottish Power HQ, Charing Cross and St Margaret's Scottish Episcopal Church, Newlands will be taking part.

Members of the public are being encouraged to take pictures of their local landmarks lit red and to then share them on social media, tagging @Poppyscotland and using the hashtags #LightUpRed #ThankYou100 and #ScottishPoppyAppeal.

Gordon Michie, Head of Fundraising at Poppyscotland, said: “We wanted to broaden the reach of our Light Up Red campaign in this momentous year as a tribute to those who sacrificed so much during the First World War and to shine a light on those who continue to need Poppyscotland’s vital, life-changing support today.”

Mr Michie added: “We owe a huge thanks to everyone who has helped make this happen and we are delighted that Glasgow has done so much to be part of the campaign. The impact of the First World War touched every corner of our country, so it is only fitting that our Light Up Red campaign does the same. We hope this will inspire people to dig even deeper for this year’s Scottish Poppy Appeal.”

The majority of buildings will be lighting up for the full week up to, and including, Armistice Day on November 11.
