Light Up Red 2023

We were pleased to support this year's Poppy Appeal with our Light Up Red event at the Abbey. Thanks to support from Kilwinning Community Council and North Ayrshire Council, our hardworking volunteers were able to welcome visitors to the roof of the Tower for fantastic views on a beautiful still evening. A donation has been sent to the Royal British Legion.LUR 1LUR 2LUR 3
