Military children’s charity, Little Troopers, is calling for military families in Helston to enter its annual calendar competition.

The charity is searching for real-life, heart-warming photos that capture the special bond between military children and their serving parents.

Louise Fetigan, founder of Little Troopers, said: “We know there is a big military community in Helston with RNAS Culdrose on the doorstep so we would love to see local military families represented in next year’s calendar.

“We want to see photos that encapsulate military life and celebrate the unique relationship that Armed Forces parents share 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 local 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.”

This is The West Country:

Details of the Military Moments competition and how to enter can be found on the Little Troopers website.

The competition will close on September 12, when 13 images will be selected for the calendar and the best three photos will also win a prize.

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