One of King’s Lynn’s biggest employers has chosen Scotty’s Little Soldiers as its Charity of the Year.
Following an employee vote, medical device manufacturer Bespak will support the Lynn-based charity which helps bereaved armed forces children across the UK.
Bespak, in Bergen Way, has kicked off its pledge to support the charity for the next 12 months by donating a cheque for £7,500.
The company will also be getting involved in challenges which Scotty’s Little Soldiers participates in and will be organising a number of fundraising activities.
Managing director of Bespak Keyvan Djamarani, said: “We are really looking forward to working with Scotty’s Little Soldiers and the Bespak Charity Committee already has a schedule of activities that our colleagues can get involved with.”
Stuart Robinson, chief executive officer of Scotty’s Little Soldiers which was founded in 2010, said: “We are delighted to have been selected and every penny raised over the next 12 months will go a long way in helping us continue to deliver a high level of support to bereaved forces children when they need it the most.”
