A CHARITY calendar featuring heart-warming military moments between Armed Forces children and their parents has gone on sale.
The Little Troopers Military Moments calendar contains a series of Forces family photos, with proceeds raising money towards the charity’s mission of helping more than 120,000 children keep their special bond with parents serving away from home.
Louise Fetigan, founder and operations manager of Little Troopers said: “This is our charity’s seventh calendar and once again our military community have sent us some beautiful pictures that truly capture the heart-breaking reality of families’ lives.
“The last cuddle before a long deployment or that welcome home hug where you just want to hold them forever is so special and we have some of those moments in next year’s calendar.”
Highlights in the calendar include four-year-old Millie McSeveney-Liddell welcoming dad Private Jordan McSeveney-Liddell (3 SCOTS) home after his longest deployment; Isabelle Thornton (4) running to give dad Corporal Stuart Thornton (RAF Halton) a big hug after the end of a recruits graduation parade; and 15-day old Louis Darwell with his dad, Lieutenant Warfare Officer Joseph Darwell (HMS Clyde).
Little Troopers aims to help maintain the family bond through events, resources and initiatives such as its Little Troopers Treasures app and a separation pack.
The Little Troopers Military Moments calendar costs £9.99 (plus P&P) and can be ordered from littletroopers.net
