Duns to host candlelit vigil

Duns Square will be the scene of a candlelit vigil on Wednesday night.

It has now been almost 100 days since militants staged a sickening raid on a school in north-eastern Nigeria, kidnapping over 200 girls.

In that time, the heartache of parents and relatives has been felt around the world, powering a global movement to #BringBackOurGirls.

Vigils are being held worldwide for people to show their support with the Duns one being organised by one of the stars of last years’s ‘Vagina Monolgues’, Karen Lerpiniere.

To get involved take your own candle along to the Square at 10pm.
