Children are being given the chance to step out with Scotty dressed as their favourite Superhero on a King’s Lynn fun run to raise money for the youngsters of fallen service men and women.
Scotty’s Superhero Fun Run will take place in the King’s Lynn town centre on Sunday July 1 with cash raised going towards providing days out and holidays for children who have lost a parent in the British Armed Forces. The run is open to children up to the age of 18 and will include a fun day with live bands, face-painting and a Spot Scotty hunt.
The event was the idea of Kai Scott who is the founders son and who lost his dad in Afghan in 2009.
Kai, eight, said:
“I want to help Scotty’s Little Soldiers like my mummy and I thought it would be a fun way to raise some money.”
In addition to providing bereaved children with days out, holidays and birthday and Christmas presents, the charity is also raising money to buy holiday homes across the UK to offer grieving families a revitalising break. Scotty’s Superhero Fun Run will involve a lap around the middle of the town centre and all children taking part will receive a goodie bag and a medal.
Entry to the Fun Run costs £5, registration forms must be signed by parents or guardians and children under the age of eight need to be accompanied by an adult.
The fun begins at 11am at the Vancouver Quarter band stand with the just-for-fun run beginning at 4pm.
To register, visit or telephone the Scotty’s Little Soldiers’ office at 28 Railway Road, King’s Lynn, PE30 1NF, 01553 763000 on Mondays, Wednesdays or Fridays between 9.30am to 2.30pm to pay using a credit or debit card.
