Big Lottery Fund 
It's FREE and you deserve it! The Big Lottery Fund has NOW extended its Heroes Return 2 programme UNTIL December 2015! The Big Lottery Fund is making awards of between 150 and 5,500 to UK based WW2 veterans or their widows for commemorative trips back to the places where they served. This grant also will pay for a spouse and or carer to travel with a veteran. Don't lose the opportunity! We are looking forward to helping WW2 veterans journey back to destinations where they saw action.

This extension is for those veterans who have so far been unable to undertake a commemorative visit. So that as many veterans as possible get this opportunity it is only possible to fund one visit for each veteran, widow or widower. This means that if a veteran has already received funding for a commemorative visit since April 2009, it is not possible to fund a second visit. Old comrades pay their respects
