A King's Lynn based medical device manufacturer has chosen to support its neighbouring armed forces children's charity as charity of the year.
Bespak, the leading developer and manufacturer of complex medical devices, will be organising a number of fundraising activities in aid of Scotty's Little Soldiers.
Army wife Nikki Scott set up Scotty's Little Soldiers in her husband's name, Corporal Lee Scott, after he was killed in Afghanistan in 2009, leaving behind their two small children.
The Lynn-based charity supports more than 300 children across the UK who have lost a parent in the British Armed Forces.
At the launch of the charity of the year, Bespak presented Scotty's Little Soldiers with a cheque for £7,500.
Bespak Managing Director, Keyvan Djamarani said 'We are committed to supporting charities in the local community where our employees live and work.'
Stuart Robinson, chief executive of Scotty's Little Soldiers, said: 'I'd like to say a huge thank you to Bespak and its staff for choosing Scotty's as its official charity of the year – we are delighted to have been selected and every penny raised over the next 12 months will go a long way in helping us continue to deliver a high level of support to bereaved Forces children when they need it the most.'
