Founded by war widow Nikki Scott in 2010, Scotty’s Little Soldiers supports children across the UK who have lost a parent while serving in the Armed Forces. The charity was set up in memory of Nikki’s husband and father to her two children, Corporal Lee Scott, after he was killed in Afghanistan whilst in action in 2009.

No matter how small, tall, spooky or sweet, everyone is welcome to join in the Scotty’s fun and help raise funds to assist the charity that continues to deliver a high level of support to bereaved Forces children when they need it the most.

Charity founder, Nikki Scott said: “We’re very excited to get into the spooky spirit and go green for Halloween. The Scotty’s team and I will be putting our goulish feet forward and dressing up to help spread the word about Scotty’s and raise as much money as possible. We cannot wait to see everyone dressed up in their favourite outfits, we’re certain it’s going to be a fang-tastic day”.

To make a donation, supporters can text ‘GGFH18’ and the amount to 70070, or click here to donate online. For more information on Scotty’s Little Soldiers, follow this link:
