King’s Lynn-based charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers took 18 bereaved children to the Remembrance Sunday service at the Cenotaph in London, honouring parents who served their country.

Founded by war widow Nikki Scott, Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a national charity which provides support to hundreds of children across the UK who have lost a parent who served in the British Armed Forces. 

The charity was set up in memory of Ms Scott’s husband and father to two of her children, Corporal Lee Scott, after he was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.

The group marched in yellow and black striped scarves – the colours of Mr Scott’s regiment. 

After the Remembrance parade, the children were given a tour of the House of Commons, and then visited Downing Street, where they were photographed on the steps of Number 10.

Ms Scott said: “It was an emotional day for the children who were all there remembering a lost parent who is dearly missed, but it was a huge honour for them to be part of such a special day. The Scotty members all feel part of a community and being there together meant a lot to them.”
