‘We Are Veterans 2022 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. 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 ‘2022 Big Challenge’ we can help ‘Scotty’s Little Soldiers’ to achieve their aim and help these children and young people. Scotty’s Little Soldiers, Registered Charity Number: 1136854.
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”.
