Condover Hall welcomes Scotty’s Little Soldiers charity
Tuesday, December 6, 2016
A special weekend saw Condover Hall play its part as Scotty’s Little Soldiers provided children who have lost a parent in the military with a day of fun activities.
268 children along with their family members were in attendance, including the family of Fusilier Lee Rigby. The Sun newspaper caught up with the family to learn more of the impact of Lee Rigby’s death on the family and, in particular, their young son. The day led by Scotty’s Little Soldiers provided a release; an opportunity for children to experience joy and, for many parents, a chance for parents to see a smile on their child’s face.
Simon Gregson from ITV’s Coronation Street made an appearance with his family. A supporter of Scotty’s Little Soldiers for the past five years, the actor holds the charity close to his heart with family members having previously served in the military.
With themed rooms, including Willy Wonka, Hogwarts, Narnia, and Peter Pan, children were presented with a wide variety of activities encouraging interaction and hands-on engagement. Condover Hall’s JCA team were on-site to support in setting up a weekend to remember for Scotty’s Little Soldiers.
