Elivia Thomson, who’s Dad serves in the British Army, was named ‘Little Trooper of the Month’ after deciding to make up bags of coats, blankets, food, water, face masks and sanitiser and distribute them to homeless people across Liverpool. Her mum Sarah also nominated her for the award for helping her little sister, who has been missing her Dad, who works away from home in the week and has recently been deployed for six months overseas.
Elivia’s mum Sarah comments: “Elivia has made me so proud over the last few months. She has been especially kind to her sister – giving her cuddles and making her laugh when she is upset. She is also really helpful around the house and is always asking me what jobs she can do. But what made me nominate her for the award was when she decided to make up the support bags for the homeless. It was completely her own idea and I was amazed by how determined she was that this was something she wanted to do. She hates the thought of people being cold and hungry and just decided to take the initiative and do something about it. We’re so pleased that her kindness has been recognised and awarded by Little Troopers and it has come at the perfect time just as the girls’ Dad her gone away for six months.”
Elivia will receive a special medal, certificate and prize as part of her award.
Louise Fetigan, founder of Little Troopers, comments: “Reading Elivia’s nomination really warmed our hearts. It’s amazing to see such a young girl be so mature and kind to everyone around her, especially when her Dad has just been deployed overseas, which is always a challenging time for families. We’re glad to hear that Elivia is proud to be a Little Trooper and we hope she enjoys showing her Dad her very own medal.”
