Simon Barlow's hoodie supporting Scotty's Little Soldiers

Did you spot little Simon Barlow's red hoodie the other night on Coronation Street? It read Scotty's Little Soldier, a charity of which Simon Gregson, who plays Steve McDonald, is a patron of.

Scotty’s Little Soldiers was founded by Nikki Scott in memory of her husband Lee who was killed while serving with the army in Afghanistan in 2009. Read more on that here.  The charity provides days out, gifts and holidays to the children of service men and women killed in action.

Simon Gregson arranged a trip to the Corrie set in Manchester for some of the children earlier this year. We blogged about their visit here.

Simon said: “I have a huge respect for all of our service men and women, the job they do must be among the hardest in the world for them and their families. For this reason I am extremely proud to be a patron of Scotty’s Little Soldiers, a wonderful charity to help some wonderful people.”
