Little Trooper of the Month

Tegan Hodkinson-Walker

Summer 2016

Teagan was nominated for Little Trooper of the Month on the very day that marked 192 sleeps that her Daddy had been away and the day she headed up to RAF Brize Norton to be reunited with him.  Deploying in early 2016 Teagan’s father who serves in the Royal Navy has missed so much of her first school year in the UK after moving back from Canada late last summer, her fifth move in her 5 years.

Despite Daddy being away Teagan has proved to be a real Little Trooper and adjusted really well and always remains positive and thinks of others.

Louise Fetigan, founder of Little Troopers says “We wanted Teagan to know that moving around lots in a short space of time, across countries and remaining positive and strong is something to be really proud of especially when also experiencing elongated separation from her Daddy and starting big school!
