This year, ‘We Are Veterans 2020 Big Challenge’ will be raising money for ‘Scotty’s Little Soldiers’, a military charity dedicated to supporting children and young people who have lost a parent who served in the British Armed Forces.
Registered Charity Number: 1136854
Inspired by the experience of Army widow, Nikki Scott following the death of her husband Cpl Lee Scott in Afghanistan in 2009, the charity is currently providing assistance to hundreds of bereaved Forces children around the UK.
Support offered to the children includes fun activities such as holiday breaks and group events, personal development assistance through educational grants and access to professional bereavement counselling.
By uniting together in the 2020 Big Challenge we can help ‘Scotty’s Little Soldiers’ to achieve their aim and help these children and young people.
Here is a statement from Scotty’s Little Soldiers founder, Nikki Scott:
“We are so grateful to We are Veterans for raising funds for Scotty’s Little Soldiers. Every penny makes such a huge difference and means we can offer more support to more bereaved Forces children and young people. I’ve seen the difference it makes to these brave kids as they journey through life without their hero.” Nikki Scott, Founder of Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
