We look back at the recent Service Children Awards from the Veterans Awards team, who have a message and introduce the awards below…

Massive thanks to everyone who attended this year’s Service Children Awards Cymru held at the Infantry Battle School Brecon with Veterans Awards. The Awards were sponsored by Powys County Council and in Support of Little Troopers. It was such a fantastic event with a great atmosphere in the room.

Well done to everyone who were shortlisted as finalists, we had a huge amount of applications and the shortlisting process was extremely difficult. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who put forward nominations, you are all doing amazing things in your relevant fields and you should be so proud of your achievements.

Extremely thankful and very honoured to have in attendance and hear from the CEO of Powys County Council Emma Palmer, Cllr Sandra Davies, Portfolio holder for future Generations,  Armed Forces Champion Cllr Matthew Dorrance and Major DJ Greaves from the Army in Wales.  It was also lovely to hear from Caitlin Henson, a service child talking about her experiences. A special thanks also has to go to The Band of the Prince of Wales who entertained our guests and the Regional engagement teams from the 160 Brigade and the Royal Air Force.

We are so thankful to all our supporters, volunteers and sponsors who helped put this amazing night together.

Some of the highlights of the day saw the Woodhouse Family of three boys (Luke,  Jack-Gwyn and Sion) picking up four awards between them and Riley Barn became our Service Children Ambassador of the year and our very first Service Children Awards Cymru Champion, three schools were also presented with Gold AFFS SSCE Cymru Gold Award, Ysgol Pen y Bryn, Haverfordwest High VC School and Mount Street Infants School.

We want to Inspire our future service children that great things can happen. It’s you who will act as role models and in some cases mentors, remember Positivity breeds Positivity.
