Piers' Millionaire Fund
We’re incredibly excited that Piers Morgan has chosen Scotty’s Little Soldiers as the beneficiary of any funds he wins whilst taking part in the Christmas edition of Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
Scotty’s provides support to children & young people who have lost a parent who served in the British Armed Forces. Our help for bereaved military children is delivered through 4 Family Programmes, SMILES (fun and community), SUPPORT (health and well-being), STRIDES (education & development) & SPRINGBOARD (19-25 year olds).
On average it will cost us around £1,200 to provide one young person with access to our 4 Family Programmes during 2021*.
The average ‘Millionaire’ prize win is £50,000 which would provide a year’s worth of support for 41 bereaved children! Can you help Piers and Scotty’s support the children of our heroes?
How each Prize Level could make a difference to our work:

£500 – Would provide a week long stay for a bereaved family at a Scotty Lodge
