Another glance at Arria - who certainly suits purple!

Last week we had a tremendous reaction to a shot of Arria which was taken by reader Ross Hamilton in an atmospheric shot snapped at dawn.

The spectacular handiwork of sculptor Andy Scott doesn’t just extend a warm welcome to the motorists who pass her on Auchinkilns but has acted as a beacon for good causes. Cumbernauld Rotary Club who kindly supplied this photograph as they aimed to raise awareness of polio -as the colour purple is associated with the vaccine which sees a patient have ink of this colour applied to their pinky!

Other charities have illuminated Arria too – and it certainly makes for a monumental spectacle!
