My Daddy is a Soldier Adventures, a charity that provides support to British Army children, is launching a competition to find some images for its very special 2015 calendar.
The charity is asking families to send in a photo or picture that shows what “me and my soldier” means to them.
Louise Fetigan, founder and director of the charity, said: “A soldier can spend up to nine months a year away from their children so the bond between them is so precious.
“Each year we get thousands of pictures and photos so it is hard to choose, but it is an absolute privilege to have these very special moments shared with us.”
Winning pictures or photos will be included in the charity’s 2015 calendar, which will raise money to help even more children and Army families.
Everyone who enters an image will have the chance to win one of three great prizes. There are also nine runner-up places:
- 1st Prize – £50 Cinema vouchers, Little Trooper hoodie and a featured month in the calendar
- 2nd Prize – £25 Cinema vouchers, Little Trooper hoodie and a featured month in the calendar
- 3rd Prize – Little Trooper hoodie and a featured month in the calendar
- 9 runner-ups will all get their pictures featured as a month in the calendar.
Pictures and photos should be emailed to email@example.com alternatively you can post them to My Daddy is a Soldier Adventures, 4b 80 High Street, Egham, Surrey, TW20 9HE.
All entries should be marked “Calendar Competition” and include your name, age and contact details. Closing date is the 28th September 2014.
The calendar shows a side of Forces life very rarely shared. It will be the third that is created by the families of the British Army for all to enjoy and will be on sale for £9.99 and can be pre-ordered by visiting www.freewebstore.org/my-daddy-is-a-soldier-adventures/index.aspx?pageid=1281569
The charity is also working on a selection of Christmas cards, with some unique illustrations, for £3.50.
All proceeds from the calendar and cards will go to My Daddy is a Soldier Adventures supporting the little troopers at home.
