On Friday, December 7, King’s Lynn based Scotty’s Little Soldiers are holding its first Bobble Hat Day designed to make a difference to the lives of bereaved forces children this Christmas.

Nikki Scott, founder of the charity said: “We use this day as a way of showing our members that we’re there for them ahead of Christmas – a particularly difficult period in the life of any child who has lost a parent. The Scotty’s family is here, and by taking part in Bobble Hat Day and donating to Scotty’s, you’re helping us with our mission to make children smile again.”
