For those unfamiliar with our cause @scottyslittlesoldiers
was founded in 2010 by Army Widow Nikki Scott.
Nikki’s husband Cpl Lee Scott, of the 2nd Royal Tank Regiment, was killed in Afghanistan on the 10th July 2009, leaving behind Nikki and their two children Kai (5 yrs) and Brooke (6 mnths). Nikki witnessed the light go out in Kai’s eyes as she told him his Daddy wouldn’t be coming home. Some 9 months after Lee’s death, family members persuaded Nikki to join them on holiday and it was then that she saw Kai laughing and smiling whilst playing in the swimming pool and realised it was the first time he had smiled since his Dad had been killed.
She wondered how many other children had also lost a parent serving in the British Armed Forces but hadn’t been given that opportunity to smile again.
She decided to set up a charity to do just that. To #HelpTheirChildrenSmile
is 100% owned and operated by Scotty’s Little Soldiers so 100% of your purchase comes straight to the charity.
