Plea for volunteers to help King’s Lynn-based Scotty’s Little Soldiers
A King's Lynn-based charity that supports the children of fallen servicemen and women is looking for voluntary staff to help run its new headquarters in the town.
The office, near the town's bus station, provides a base for Scotty's Little Soldiers to help the charity move towards its target of raising hundreds of thousands of pounds to buy three holiday homes.
But now the charity is looking for voluntary administration clerks and assistants who can work between 10am and 2pm on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays at its office.
Clerks would help with filing, answering the phones, monitoring e-mails and typing, while assistants would make telephone calls and contact companies to seek donations of tickets and gifts for members.
The charity was founded by Nikki Scott, 29, in memory of her husband Cpl Lee Scott, who was killed in an explosion in Afghanistan in 2009.

Mrs Scott, who lives in Walpole St Andrew, near King's Lynn, said: 'The new office is brilliant because it means we have a base to properly build up the charity from, but now we need some extra help to take it to the next level.'
The charity is currently pushing to raise �450,000 to buy three homes and maintain them and has so far raised about �70,000.

The plea for volunteers comes after signage for the new office, plus pop-ups and banners for shows, was provided by East Coast Signs, based in Lynn.
The company has also produced a pitch-side advertising board for King's Lynn Town FC, which has provided the space free of charge.
It also follows an announcement by the owners of King's Lynn fashion shop Ikon who said they would be helping the charity by stocking its range of clothing.
Cpl Scott, 26, who grew up in King's Lynn, was serving with the 2nd Royal Tank Regt at the time of his death.
People can pop into the new office, the entrance to which is via Old Market Street, or contact the team on 01553 763000.
