We are showing support for Scotty’s Little Soldiers
We have chosen to support Scotty’s Little Soldiers as our charity of the year for 2018-19.
The charity supports children and adolescents who have lost a parent serving in the British Armed Forces, by offering activities, holidays, educational grants, and access to professional bereavement counselling. It was founded in 2009 by Army widow Nikki Scott following the death of her husband Corporal Lee Scott.
The mission behind the charity is close to our hearts and we’re sure it is for many of the local Whitehill & Bordon community.
Whitehill and Bordon has a long and proud military history, having had the army present in the area for more than 110 years. Though there are no longer active training facilities, the town remains an important area for the military, and the many army families who live in the town.
“We couldn’t be prouder to support Scotty’s Little Soldiers. To be able to help the children whose parents gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom is a privilege. We always strive to play an active role in the community, and to make sure that the community members are at the heart of every decision we make,”
“Most importantly we must take care to remember those who are no longer with us and look after the families who remain in the town and who are active in the Army. That is why it is imperative to involve charities affiliated with the Army; and help those families with past and present military histories.”
says James Child, project lead of Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company.
We are holding several events over the course of 2018-2019 to support Scotty’s Little Soldiers. The first of which will be held on 31 August 2018. You can find out more about the events here on our website.
