ServiceMaster Clean Contract Services Leicester, Northampton and Peterborough are proud to be supporting a very worthwhile charity “Scotty’s Little Soldiers”.
Sandra Webster has worked at ServiceMaster as Operations Manager for over 28 years now and has this to say:
‘My Grandchildren lost their father in Afghanistan 10yrs ago at the end of June, and my granddaughter was 6 at the time. As her father was in the para’s she has said from an early age that once she reached 16yrs she would do a sponsored parachute jump for the charity that has supported both her and her brother since the time of their fathers passing. Having just turned 16 she has now been able to put this in place. Her charity is Scotty’s Little Soldiers, an amazing charity that have given so much support when needed, and run by army wives and ex-army wives. She will be doing the parachute jump on her father’s memorial day 27th June. In just a couple of weeks she has raised an astounding amount of over £1,774 from generous donations for this worthwhile cause, this even more amazing being that the original target was £500.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting children & young people who have lost a parent whilst serving in the British Armed Forces.
Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott following the death of her husband Cpl Lee Scott in Afghanistan in 2009, the charity is currently providing assistance to hundreds of bereaved Forces children around the UK.
