Back in May 2016 Little Troopers ran a Father’s Day competition in conjunction with notonthehighstreet.com to win a Hang out with Dad Day. Little Troopers were asked to write in or draw what their special Hang out Day would be, perfect for Little Troopers who had recently experienced separation from a serving Dad.
The competition closed in June and a winning British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force family were chosen and notonthehighstreet.com made those days come true!
One Little Trooper won a London experience Day, visiting the London Eye, Shrek experience and Madame Tussauds, our second winning Little Trooper flew to London for a Natural History Museum Experience and out third Little Trooper won a Legoland experience.
Gabriels dream of the London Experience with Daddy came true after Dad had been in Canada for a lonf time working. James, Gabriels Dad said “I just wanted to thank you again for a fantastic day out. Gabriel had a wonderful time and it was lovely to create some special family memories together”
Freya wrote asking to go to Legoland with her Daddy who had been away for over 7 months recently and she missed him very much.
Gemma, Freya’s mum said of the experience “Seeing my daughters eyes as we went in to the hotel and watching her delight in sharing new experiences with her dad was an amazing gift. We were able to create memories and share experiences that will be forever precious. I can not thank you enough. As the mother of my Little Troopers at the end of a long deployment it was a wonderful way for us all to reconnect and enjoy quality time together”
Finally Finn wanted to go with his daddy to The Natural History Museum.
All three Little Troopers had great fun and made memories that will last a lifetime, so important to military families.
