Supporting Soldiers both Past and Present.
In March 2019 10 serving members of the British Army will each be running 101 miles over 5 days. (Thats over 20 miles of running for each person on each of the 5 days!)
We are aiming to raise £10,000. 50% of money raised will be donated to Scotty's Little Soldiers and 50% will go towards funding for British Army Football.
We will be running 101 miles as next year will be 101 years since Armistice Day and unfortunately, due to the nature of being in the Army, we are not all available to run in 2018 - so we will have to do an extra mile! We will be running between two historic locations linked with the British Army - Ashford, Kent and Chicksands, Bedford.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
Scotty's Little Soldiers is a charity partnered with our British Army Representative Football Team and we regularly conduct events to raise money for them.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting bereaved British Forces children and young people.
Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott, the charity honours husband Corporal Lee Scott’s memory – both as a loyal soldier and a loving father – and provides a practical yet personal way for the public at large to show their appreciation for those brave individuals who make the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country.
Nikki and Lee have 2 children, Kai and Brooke, so Nikki saw first-hand the effect the loss of a loved one in these circumstances can have on a child. It was on a family holiday some 9 months after Lee was killed that Nikki saw her son Kai, 5 at the time, laugh and smile for the first time since his Dad’s death. She realised that there must be so many more children who had also lost a parent serving in the British Armed Forces but hadn’t had that opportunity to smile again.
She decided to set up the charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers to do just that, to help their children smile.
British Army Football.
Football is a big part of life in the Army. When not deployed on operations or exercises, soldiers will look to play for the unit and representative football teams in various competitions.
Football brings soldiers together and provides a platform to enhance team ethos and cohesion. It provides an opportunity for downtime and is essentially the backbone of the Army.
