A Fenland funeral home has teamed up to help children and young people who have lost a parent who served in the armed forces.
The Central England Co-op Funeralcare branch in Wisbech alongside other homes in King’s Lynn and Hunstanton dug deep to donate a sack of toys to Scotty’s Little Soldiers in the run-up to Christmas.
From cereal boxes to classic board games, the home wanted to help the charity, launched in memory of Corporal Lee Scott who was killed by a roadside bomb in Helmand Province in Afghanistan in 2009.
John Barry, funeral director at Central England Co-op, said: “They were overwhelmed with the toys and would like to thank everyone for their contributions.
“Thank you to all those that contributed in Wisbech, Hunstanton and Kings Lynn - it was amazing what you all did as it will now make many children’s lives much happier this Christmas.”
