King’s Lynn-based charity helps support bereaved children of British Armed Forces personnel
NORWICH City will welcome to Carrow Road this Saturday representatives of the King’s Lynn-based charity ‘Scotty’s Little Soldiers’.
Scotty's Little Soldiers is dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed while serving in the British Armed Forces. Children receive letters, cards, birthday presents, Christmas gifts, tickets, gift vouchers at tough times of the year, help towards clubs and activities and holiday breaks. Currently Scotty's Little Soldiers supports over 100 children of the fallen and has been able to purchase two amazing holiday homes in the UK, one in Great Yarmouth and one in Blackpool.
Volunteers from the charity will be collecting outside the stadium tomorrow ahead of the match with Reading.
The Club will also welcome eight-year-olds Morgan and Millie with their mum Joanna and six-year-old Jessica and her mum Amy, who will be our Community Heroes for the match – they have been supported by the charity after losing their dads in Afghanistan while serving in the British Armed Forces
Please do give them a warm reception ahead of kick-off as they bring out the matchball for the game.

Don’t forget you too can nominate a Norwich City Community Hero – is there anyone you think deserves recognition for their community efforts or a personal achievement please contact the Club via firstname.lastname@example.org
Throughout the season the Club is celebrating the good work that local people do in their community, whether that’s in the emergency services or armed forces (past and present), carers or charity champions, super fans or the region's sporting heroes, we’ll be celebrating it before every match.
Ahead of every home match, Norwich City will invite a deserving community-minded individual to be a ‘Community Hero’ and place the match ball onto a special plinth ready for the referee and players to emerge from the tunnel and collect it for the game.
