Meet our 2020 Winner!

Nikki Scott BEM, founder of Scotty’s Little Soldiers

When Nikki lost her husband in action, leaving her alone with two young children, she realised there must be many children had also lost a serving parent. Nikki was determined to make these bereaved children smile again, so in 2010, she set up Scotty’s Little Soldiers in honour of her husband Corporal Lee Scott. To date, over 400 children have benefited from her care.

Nikki Scott BEM said: “I am really honoured to receive this award. I know that when I speak on behalf of a few bereaved families, we can sometimes feel disconnected from the community when you lose someone in the military. What I love about Scotty’s Little Soldiers is that it helps to bring families back into the military community again.

“A big thank you to Soldiering On Awards because this is just another way of helping our families to feel back within the Military Community again.”
