Hannah Atkinson is raising money for Little Troopers

My story

My Mum, Michaela, and I have signed up for the Asda Foundation Hull Half Marathon to raise well needed funds for a charity called Little Troopers. It is our first ever half marathon and most likely our last!

Little Troopers is a charity that is close to our hearts. As many of you know, my husband, Peter, is serving in the Royal Navy as a Submariner. This means he is often away for long periods of time and is unable to have any contact with family back home. This is especially hard for our children, Paisley and Kenny, to cope with. Paisley and Kenny's favourite thing to do whilst their Daddy is at sea is to listen to him read them a story with the use of the Little Troopers Treasures app. Seeing their little faces when they are able to see and hear their Daddy is a huge boost for all of us.

A bit about Little Troopers - "Little Troopers is a registered charity supporting all children with one or both parents serving in our British Armed Forces (regular or reserve). These children face unique daily challenges due to their parents career choice especially when they experience repeated separation of varying lengths of time from their serving parent(s) due to exercises and operations plus moving home and school frequently due to service requirements.

As a charity we ensure all Little Troopers have fundamental resources available to help ease and aid any separation period, it is important to us that support can be reached self-sufficiently from wherever military children are based, that initiatives are in existence to keep serving parent and child connected when miles separate and that there is a community celebrating how special all the Little Troopers out there really are!

Our charity was first created back in 2011 and since that time has grown, changed and become the much loved military children’s charity and vital support toolbox that now exists.

A small charity with a big heart doing the very best for all the children of our British Armed Forces."

One week to go until the big day! Nerves are setting in but our determination is strong and no matter what happens on the day and no matter how long it may take us, we will start and we will finish to raise money for a charity that is so close to our hearts!

Will be glad when this half marathon is over 😂 another long run in the bag. The thought of how much raising the money will help support military children definitely helped to get us round this training run today!
