Lynn Co-op Travel branch collecting gifts for Scotty's Little Soldiers

By Lynn News Reporter

Central England Co-operative Travel is collecting donations of items for children this Christmas for Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a charity dedicated to supporting children and young people who have lost a parent whilst serving in the British Armed Forces.

The store in Lynn High Street will be collecting donations from now until Wednesday, December 12, for the charity founded by Nikki Scott, whose husband Corporal Lee 'Scotty' Scott was killed in 2009.

The travel store is requesting unwrapped games, puzzles and new toys, but not soft ones, as well as toiletries and cosmetics for older children.

Emma Wenham, branch manager at the Lynn branch, said: “We chose this charity as this is a great opportunity to help young people affected by bereavement and hopefully bring a smile to the faces of those who have lost a parent serving in the British Forces.”

The Santa’s Suitcase initiative has been a great success for the society, and each Central England Co-operative Travel store chooses the charity it wants to support.

Donations can be made at the branch at 17 High Street.
