One of the largest fraternal organisations in the United Kingdom, The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes, has raised hundreds of pounds for bereaved Armed Forces children’s charity Scotty’s Little Soldiers through donations and word of mouth this month…
Founded by war widow Nikki Scott in 2010, Scotty’s Little Soldiers supports children across the UK who have lost a parent while serving in the British Armed Forces. The charity was set up in memory of Nikki’s husband and father to her two children, Corporal Lee Scott, after he was killed in Afghanistan in 2009.
The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes (RAOB) support a number of charities and, after researching Scotty’s Little Soldiers, decided it was a good fit for the organisation. RAOB began to raise money for the cause earlier this year and this week presented a cheque for £500 to the charity.
Brother Les Watts role of honour, commented: “We’re always looking for worthwhile causes to support and Scotty’s Little Soldiers is truly one of these. After spending time researching the charity and learning about its programmes we were all very keen to contribute. Following the initial money we raised, we’ve requested collection buckets from the charity and hope that we can continue to contribute.”
Charity founder, Nikki Scott, said: “We’re very grateful for this donation and it will go a long way for us. It’s important for us to receive vital funds on a regular basis in order to continue to support our members. On behalf of all of Scotty’s Little Soldiers I want to say a big thank you to local members of The Royal Antediluvian Order of Buffaloes.”
