About the Charity

 

This information is taken from the website of Scotty’s Little Soldiers, but please visit their website for even more information!

Scotty’s Little Soldiers was set up by widow Nikki Scott after her husband, Corporal Lee Scott, was killed serving the British Army in Afghanistan. In the wake of his death, Nikki could see her two children struggling with the loss of their father, saying “When I took the children away on holiday about nine months after Lee had been killed, I watched Kai smiling and having fun in the pool with his cousins and I suddenly realised I had not seen my little Kai laugh like that in months.  That is when I knew I had to do something to try and help him and other children who had also sadly lost a parent, so along with my family and friends we set up Scotty’s Little Soldiers.  The charity for children of the fallen.”

Now the charity sends letters, cards, birthday presents, Christmas gifts, tickets, gift vouchers at tough times of the year, help towards clubs and activities and holiday breaks. The charity owns two holiday homes in the UK and aims to buy another soon, with the ultimate goal of letting the children of fallen soldiers know that it’s okay to smile, and to let them know that people remember their parents as heroes.
