Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre’s (AECC’s) Northern Lights Tower will be glowing poppy red from the evening of Friday 11th November until Sunday 13th November to raise awareness of the Poppy Scotland Appeal.
The Poppy Scotland Appeal raises over £2 million each year and believes that the Armed Forces community in Scotland deserve special support in recognition of the sacrifices they made through their service. Poppy Scotland provides life-changing support to the Armed Forces community, reaching out to those who have served, still serving and their families, offering vital advice, assistance and funding.
Graeme Cumming, Interim Managing Director, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, said: “AECC is a great supporter of Poppy Scotland and the life-changing support that they offer to the UK’s Armed Forces community. This will be the third year that will see the venue's Northern Lights Tower glow poppy red which we hope will encourage passers-by to show their support for this year’s powerful #Extramile campaign and that the reasoning and history behind such an iconic cause will be remembered.”
