Nikki Scott’s Note

Sophie Wheeler​​ and I are off on another challenge this weekend. This time we are staying on dry land, and are doing the Welsh 3 Peaks challenges. The target is start Snowdon at 4.30 tomorrow morning and then go on to complete Cadair Idris and Pen-Y-Fan in 16 hours (an ambitious target with all the travelling).

It’s going to be cold. It will also probably rain (we are in Wales) but it’s important to remember the reason we are doing this. We are doing 14 challenges this year to raise money for Scotty’s Little Soldiers. This blog is written by the founder of SLS and talks about why this weekend might be a bit special for SLS members.

Anyway wish us luck!! Oh, and if you haven’t donated already please think about doing so. Donate by texting “GWSW98 £5” to 70070 or go to


The Military Child

The Military Child.

An interesting thought about what makes children, whose parents are in the forces, a little bit different. My mum is a so-called pads’ brat and so are my sister and I. I wonder, if you come from the same background, how many of these personality traits you also have? The invisible bond between pads’ brats the world over is fascinating and special too. Raising money for Scotty’s Little Soldiers will see support for children in such a unique situation, and hopefully try to restore a little happiness too!
