Celebrate our heroes of the past and the future on our Snowdon Trek

Our Celebration Fundraising Trek is back in 2020 and coincides with a very special Anniversary. Over the weekend of the 8/9/10th May 2020 the Nation will be celebrating 75th anniversary of VE Day. We would love little troopers and their families to join us for our Bi-annual adventure while we remember the sacrifice of those who served in the Second World War. The Snowdon trek takes our charity back to where we started eight years ago, taking on the 3650ft (1085 metre) climb.

Louise Fetigan, Founder of Little Troopers said “Trekking up Snowdon brings back so many special memories for me. Every time we take part, I reflect on the journey me and my family have been through with our own Army life and the way the charity has grown to meet the needs of our serving families. I love to see the children and families pull together to make the climb, encouraging each other and celebrating when we reach the summit. It brings out the essence of Little Troopers to be there for our military children, support them and recognise the challenges that they overcome on a daily basis.”

Maria Slater was one of the youngest to take on the trek in 2018. She made it to the top with her Mum and Dad and said “I am an army child and I know what it’s like when my daddy goes away. It can be hard.  I like Little Troopers.”

There are still a few places left on the trek, you can sign up now. We have everything you need for the weekend; hotel information, the action-packed schedule and sponsorship support.
