Sister Margaret Earish, who works at The Clarkson Surgery in Wisbech, has been so moved by the work of the charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers that she has arranged a book sale to take place at the Surgery in De Havilland Road between 18 – 22 February, to raise funds for this local charity.
Scotty’s Little Soldiers is dedicated to supporting the children of men and women killed in action while serving with the British Armed Forces.
The charity provides treats, trips and activities for families of the fallen with the aim of offering a respite – however brief - from the daily ups and downs of coping without a loved one.
Inspired by the experience of army widow, Nichola Scott, the charity honours husband Corporal Lee ‘Scotty’ Scott’s memory – both as a loyal soldier and a loving father – and provides a practical yet personal way for the public at large to show their appreciation for those brave individuals who make the ultimate sacrifice in the service of their country.
The book sale will take place in the main waiting area of the surgery during usual working hours 8.30am – 6pm.
