LONDON, June 15, /PRNewswire/ --Here at the Victory Services Club we are excited to announce our latest competition aimed at families in the military community.
Now the children of the armed forces community have their chance to portray their experience of military life by letting their imaginations come alive on paper.
Drawing their experience of what life is like in the armed forces community could win them a fantastic all expenses paid break for up to six members of the family in London.
The VSC will provide the accommodation, organise fabulous days out and all train fares will be sponsored by HMforces.co.uk – all thanks to the scribble happy unsung heroes of the military family. It's their chance to say thanks to their heroes.
Whatever their age we'd love to see their views of military life through their natural creative flair.
For all the support we've given and all the support that has been received, there's one group of people who support the armed forces community unconditionally; children of the armed forces community.
We think it's time the children were saluted too for all the love and support they give for all the bravery, devotion and loyalty their loved ones have given.
Here at the Victory Services Club we have a proud history of serving members of the armed forces in the UK. For over a hundred years we have been there for Veterans, old and young; those currently serving in the armed forces and their families, and have provided a home from home.
The competition will run until 30 September 2010.
