Little Trooper of the Month

Finian Maguire

November 2016

Finian is five years old and has to deal with a lot of upheaval with both his Mummy and Daddy serving in the Royal Air Force. Not only are his parents based in separate locations, Finian’s Mum is currently on operations in the Middle East until January 2017.

Finians Mum said when she nominated him “He is such a Little Trooper and takes it all in his stride. I am so very proud of my little boy. This award would make his day, and it’s great that children can be recognised for the issues they have to deal with whilst parents are away from home”

Louise Fetigan founder of Little Troopers said “It is really important children with dual serving parents know that their challenges are recognised, Finian will be missing his Mummy greatly while she is away from home. We hope this award raises a smile”
