Scotty’s Little Soldiers charity boosted by forces fundraiser

I was delighted to be asked to photograph this fantastic fundraising event to honour of a serviceman killed in one of the worst military disasters since the Falklands War has raised £8,000 for forces’ charities.

Elcock_008RAF officer Leigh Mitchelmore was one of 14 crew members on board a Nimrod spy plane in September 2006 when it suffered a catastrophic in-flight fire and subsequently crashed in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Every serviceman on board was killed, making it the biggest single loss of life suffered by the British military in recent history. Claire Elcock of Highcliffe, the widow of Flt Lt Leigh Mitchelmore, spoke about the loss faced by the families of the 14 soldiers and why one of the charities was important to her family. She said: “Scotty’s Little Soldiers is a charity very close to my heart. As some of you know, my first husband Leigh was a navigator on the Nimrod that sadly crashed in Afghanistan in 2006.

Elcock_070“Not only did it leave 14 women without their partners and husbands but also 18 children, which included my three-year-old and five-month-old without their daddy. It was the biggest military loss since the Falklands. At the time, I had a lot of support from the other widows, the military and my friends and family; however, at the time, there was nothing in place for the children.” Scotty’s Little Soldiers was set up by army widow Nikki Scott in order to support children who have lost a parent in the armed forces. The charity aims to help children deal with loss by providing professional bereavement counselling.

Elcock_041The fundraising evening organized by Elcock Associates took place at the Captains Club Hotel in Christchurch. Adam Elcock, managing director, said: “These charities are very close to mine and my wife’s hearts. I have known her since we were 17 and we grew up together. “She married Leigh, who was my friend, and in a strange twist we reconnected several years after his death and ended up together. Giving something back to these fantastic charities is important to us, and we are delighted with the night itself.”
