Military children’s charity, Little Troopers, is calling on British Armed Forces families to share their heart-warming family photos for its 2020 calendar competition. 

The ‘Military Moments’ calendar will feature real-life photos taken by military families that capture the special bond between military children and their serving parents. Families can submit their images on the Little Troopers’ website and the competition will close on 12th September. Thirteen images will be selected for the calendar and the best three photos will also win a prize.

Louise Fetigan, founder of Little Troopers, explains:

“Once again we are on the hunt for real-life photos that encapsulate military life and celebrate the unique relationship that Armed Forces parents share with their children.

“This is the eighth year we have run the search and we have been privileged to share some truly treasured moments. These photos bring to life what our charity is all about, which is to champion and support our wonderful little troopers. It’s our favourite time of year and we can’t wait to see everyone’s entries for the 2020 calendar.”

Every day British Armed Forces personnel share magical moments with their children. Whether that’s a big homecoming welcome following a long deployment, a garrison preschool class proudly dressed in uniform, a child waving to their parent in a military parade or simply a big family cuddle after a week on exercise. If it’s a special military moment that makes you smile or brings a tear to your eye then Little Troopers want to hear from you.

Calendar sales

The ‘Military Moments’ 2020 calendar will go on sale later this year and help raise money for Little Troopers to continue providing fundamental resources and initiatives to support military children such as the Little Troopers Treasures’ storytime app and Little Troopers’ Separation Pack.
