Children taking part in the Mini and Junior Runs are encouraged to raise a small amout of money to help a local cause.
They can, of course, choose any charity of their choice - or opt to support the event's official partner charity.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity dedicated to supporting children & young people who have lost a parent whilst serving in the British Armed Forces.
Inspired by the experience of Army widow Nikki Scott following the death of her husband Cpl Lee Scott in Afghanistan in 2009, the charity is currently providing assistance to hundreds of bereaved Forces children around the UK. Support offered to the children includes fun activities such as holiday breaks and group events, personal development assistance through educational grants and access to professional bereavement counselling
Our mission is to #HelpTheirChildrenSmile.
