Little Troopers Latest News
Message from Little Troopers" The UK is in varying stages of lockdown and COVID restrictions, but wherever you are, we are into month eight of this Pandemic affecting all of our lives. The Remembrance Service at the Cenotaph was a poignant reminder of how it has changed our day to day life.At Little Troopers we have done what we can to ensure our support is still available, I lead a small team who have always worked from their own homes which has meant work has been able to continue. We have had to make some changes; postponing our Snowdon fundraising challenge and introducing a virtual activity, we also moved our school roadshow to 2021 and we've been getting creative to ensure we can still deliver some cheer leading up to Christmas with our Smiles initiative.We're very mindful of the fact that lots of British Armed Forces personnel are being called away to support with COVID as well as deployments that are continuing to happen. We know lots of families will be missing Mum or Dad at home this Christmas and we know the festive season is difficult alongside deployment, even more so in the pandemic, we have LOTS coming up for you. Keeping this is mind check out our Crafty Little Troopers news story, there are lots of activities that the children can do leading up to Christmas; making cards, wrapping paper and gifts.Stay strong and keep well, Louise x " Fundraisers of the month
