Little Trooper of the Month

Evan Lewis

July 2021

Evan Lewis has been awarded ‘Little Trooper of the Month’ while his Dad is deployed overseas with the Royal Navy for eight months. Evan’s Dad deployed in April and won’t be home until the end of the year, so will miss Evan’s birthday celebrations in the autumn.

Evan lives with his Mum and Dad in Yeovil, hundreds of miles away from their family in Wales. Evan was nominated by his Nan who told Little Troopers, “He is missing his Daddy terribly and has really struggled at times, but he’s also trying really hard to stay strong and he received three school awards and an amazing school report at the end of term. We are all so proud of him and winning the Little Trooper of the Month Award means the absolute world to him and us.”

Evan will receive a Little Troopers medal, certificate and a £50 voucher as part of his prize.

Louise Fetigan, founder of Little Troopers, said: “Lots of military children have parents who are deployed for months on end and have to miss their birthdays and Christmases but that doesn’t mean it isn’t hard. Evan’s story is one of the reasons that we founded Little Troopers – to help support military children through periods of deployment and separation from their serving parent. We really hope that being awarded Little Trooper of the Month makes Evan smile and shows him that he is part of a large community of other children who are all little troopers, just like him.”

This months Little Trooper of the Month award has kindly been sponsored by Amazon.
