Get ready …. , get set and get your hats on for Scotty’s Little Soldiers Bobble Hat Day – this is a really simple way to raise funds for the children our heroes have left behind this Christmas!
We are all looking forward to Christmas, a magical few weeks filled with parties, presents, and family time.
But not everyone is that lucky. Hundreds of children from British Forces families will have someone very special missing from their Christmas.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is dedicated to providing support to bereaved Forces children and young people. This year so far the charity has supported 400 bereaved Service children across the UK. During December almost 200 children will attend a magical Christmas event in London, providing them the opportunity not only to smile again, but also meet other young people who have shared a similar experience. Over 400 unique gifts will be sent out over Christmas to let these brave young people know we haven’t forgotten the sacrifices made by their families in the service of their country.
We need your help to continue to this support at Christmas and throughout the year.
On Friday 6th December we want everyone to join in to make Scotty’s Bobble Hat Day a success all over the UK.
Get all your work colleagues or classmates to have fun whilst raising money.
Wear your favourite, quirkiest bobble or festive hats and raise money to make a real difference to the children this Christmas.
All you need to do is wear your best bobble hat on Friday 6th December and text to donate. We’re hoping loads of Scotty’s supporters will be joining in, will you?
