Volunteer co-ordinator John Falla said: “The poppy symbol is not only about those who gave their life in war time it is also to remember members of the forces who have possibly suffered stress and hardships since. It’s a great way to say thanks.

“The sponsorship will hopefully cover the cost of the poppies and a surplus being divided between Poppy Scotland and the Youth Trust.
