Today, Friday 1st November, our ‘Poppy Bus’ was unveiled as part of the Edinburgh Poppy Day event at St Andrew Square and will once again return to the Field of Remembrance to mark the two-minute silence on the 11th November.
To make the occasion extra special, Lothian invited former service personnel who now work for the company to attend
This year’s design is high impact featuring a modern pattern of bright red poppies set against an all-red background. It will run on various routes throughout Edinburgh and the Lothians across November.
Richard Hall, Lothian’s Managing Director said:
“Lothian is proud to have many employees across our business who currently serve in the reserves or are ex-armed forces personnel and the Poppyscotland appeal is particularly close to the hearts of both our staff and our customers.
“We hope that our various activities running throughout the month of November, along with this years Poppy bus, will help raise both awareness and vital funds for this great charity to allow them to continue to support the Armed Forces Community across Scotland.”
