Jordan Fitness are supporting Scotty’s Challenge this November.
Raising money for Scotty’s Little Soldiers, The Scotty Challenge is being held virtually throughout November and beyond, in memory of our fallen heroes and in support of their children left behind.

More about Scotty’s Little Soldiers
Scotty’s Little Soldiers was founded in 2010 by war widow Nikki Scott, a year after her husband, Corporal Lee Scott (known as Scotty), was killed in action. Nikki saw the devastating impact on their two young children and wanted to help others in the same situation.
The charity arranges for bereaved Forces families to go on respite breaks, organises special events, sends presents to the children at extra difficult times of year, offers wellbeing care, as well as educational support and grants. Being part of the Scotty community reminds hundreds of bereaved Forces children they aren’t alone.
For anyone who has lost a loved one who served, Remembrance is every day, but a ‘November to Remember’ campaign by Scotty’s Little Soldiers, encourages everyone to take the time to think about the ultimate sacrifices made by our servicemen and women and their families left behind.
Scotty’s ambassador, Sergeant Major Glenn Haughton OBE, is backing the ‘November to Remember’ campaign and fronting The Scotty Challenge.
Glenn said: “The Scotty Challenge has been designed in a way that anyone can attempt it. It’s a tough challenge, a challenge that will test you physically and mentally and it’s a challenge that is befitting of our fallen heroes whose children have sadly been left behind. Just remember that your participation, your determination and your sweat and effort will go some way to supporting our bereaved Service children.”
