CHARITY TODAY AWARDS

£5,000 Snowdon success for Little Troopers

CHARITY Little Troopers has successfully raised more than £5,000 thanks to fundraisers who have taken part in its ‘We Climbed a Mountain’ challenge.

The charity was forced to cancel its biennial Mount Snowdon climb in May due to the COVID-19 lockdown. Instead, more than 60 climbers have conquered Mount Snowdon individually during September and many others have completed virtual challenges from home including running, hiking and cycling.

Louise Fetigan, founder of Little Troopers commented:

“Our Mount Snowdon climb was supposed to be our biggest fundraising event of 2020 so we are so thankful to all our fundraisers who have supported us and completed their mountain challenge, whether that be in Wales or from home. Every penny makes a huge difference to our small charity.”

Little Troopers was founded in 2011 to support service children who have a parent serving in the British Armed Forces, regular or reserve. These children often face unique challenges including frequent house and school moves, as well as regular periods of separation from their serving parent or parents.

The charity provides resources and initiatives to support children during these times including a free story recording app for families, an online information hub with downloadable activities, separation packs and a newly launched Little Troopers Letters pack for service children who are due to move home soon and wish to keep in touch with a close friend they will be leaving behind. The charity also runs an ‘In School’ project offering dedicated courses and resources for primary schools, with new secondary school resources due to launch later this month.
