April marks the month of the Military Child. Here at Support Our Paras we understand the stresses to family life growing up in a military family – it is hard for the parents, whether they are the one who leaves or stays, and it is especially hard on our children, who can often go for months without seeing or hearing from a serving parent.
Military children are an incredibly special group, who quickly learn to be resilient and strong from a young age out of necessity. During the month of April, the spotlight is on them and how important they are within a military family.
This April, Support Our Paras invites you to celebrate our Airborne children by taking part in an Airborne Forces Colouring Competition! Simply download the colouring sheet below and draw a picture that represents our Airborne Forces. Once you’re done, simply take a photo of the finished picture and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org* by Wednesday 31 May 2023 to be in with a chance of winning a charity t-shirt and some other goodies. Please make sure you include your name and age when you submit your entry. Good luck!
*Completed drawings can also be posted to us at SUPPORT OUR PARAS, RHQ PARA, Merville Barracks, Colchester CO2 7UT for display in our offices.
