The Signal Tower Museum is going the extra mile for the 2016 Scottish Poppy Appeal by lighting up red for the second year.

The stunning tower, situated near Arbroath’s picturesque and busy harbour, will shine red from 5pm - 2am every night until 13th November to raise awareness of the annual fundraising campaign run by the leading charity Poppyscotland, and they will be joined in this powerful, visual show of support by 19 other iconic buildings and structure across Scotland.

Gordon Michie, Head of Fundraising from Poppyscotland, said: “We are delighted that the Signal Tower Museum is showing its support for this year’s Scottish Poppy Appeal by lighting up red. We hope that when people see it they will think about ways that they too can go the extra mile in their support for this year’s Poppy Appeal. Whether it’s putting a little bit more in the poppy tin, or doing something completely different to raise money, every penny helps us to offer life-changing support so we can be there when they call for backup.”

Kirsten Couper, Museum Officer at Signal Tower Museum, said: “Signal Tower Museum is delighted to be part of the Scottish Poppy Appeal this year. We hear a lot of positive feedback from locals who appreciate their town doing its bit for a significant and poignant national remembrance event.”
