An interactive learning space designed to teach communities across Scotland about the importance of remembrance and the heritage of the poppy will be visiting Clydebank High later this month.

Poppyscotland’s “Bud” - an 18-tonne truck that transforms into a contemporary exhibition - will travel to schools, community spaces and events across Scotland over the next four years.

Bud has been developed by the charity to allow the public to gain a deeper understanding of remembrance and the poppy’s role in modern Scottish society as a symbol of unity and hope.

On Wednesday, August 28, Bud will be at Clydebank High.

Pupils will hear moving stories from veterans and learn more about the work carried out by Poppyscotland since the charity’s inception through films and stories from those who have served, those still serving, and their families.

Youngsters will also have the chance to make their own poppy, using the same techniques used by veterans who work tirelessly each year to make five million poppies ahead of the annual Scottish Poppy Appeal.
