Just ten days left to enter Military Moments competition

There are just ten days left for you to share your most precious moments with us. We have been overwhelmed with the cuteness of the entries for our  8th Little Troopers Calendar competition so far.  The competition was launched to help use find the heart-warming family photos that will make up our 2020 Military Moments calendar and there is still time to enter.

The Military Moments calendar features real-life photos taken by military families that capture the special bond between military children and their serving parents. Whether that’s a big homecoming welcome following a long deployment, a garrison preschool class proudly dressed in uniform, a child waving to their parent in a military parade or simply a big family cuddle after a week on exercise. If it’s a special military moment that makes you smile or brings a tear to your eye then we want to hear from you.

Louise Fetigan, Founder of the charity, explains: “Once again we are on the hunt for photos that encapsulate military life and celebrate the magical connection Armed Forces parents share with their children.

“This is the eighth year we have run the search and we have been privileged to share some truly treasured moments. These photos bring to life what our charity is all about, which is to champion and support our wonderful little troopers. It’s our favourite time of year and we can’t wait to see everyone’s entries this year.”

Families can find out how to submit their images here; the competition will close on 12thSeptember 2019. Thirteen images will be selected for the calendar and the best three photos will also win a prize.

  • 1stPrize –£75 cinema voucher, Little Trooper hoodie, and a featured month in the calendar
  • 2ndPrize – £50 cinema voucher, Little Trooper hoodie, and a featured month in the calendar
  • 3rdPrize – £25 cinema voucher, Little Trooper hoodie, and a featured month in the calendar

Louise added, “We encourage any military family serving in the British Army, Royal Air Force, Royal Navy or the Reserves to get snapping with the camera and enter.”

The ‘Military Moments’ 2020 calendar will go on sale later this year and help raise money to help us continue providing fundamental resources and initiatives to support military children such as the Little Troopers Treasuresstorytime app and Little Troopers Separation Pack.
