At the beginning of this year Nikki Scott, founder of Scotty's Little Soldiers based in Lynn was recognised in the Queen’s 2021 Honours List.

Nikki was awarded a British Empire Medal (BEM) for her support to young people who have experienced the death of a parent who served in the British Armed Forces

Nikki attended an event at The Norfolk Club in Norwich on Wednesday, where she was presented her BEM by the Lord-Lieutenant, Lady Dannatt.

Nikki said: “It’s a huge honour to receive a BEM and the event was very special.

"This award highlights that the work Scotty’s does is recognised, and that’s what means the most to me.

"There’s a team of us that work hard to ensure bereaved Forces children and young people are getting the support they need, so this is for all of us at Scotty’s.”
