As the 65th anniversary of VJ Day has recently passed it is really important that we continue to recognise the efforts of those who fought in the Second World War.

The Big Lottery Fund's Heroes Return programme provides funding to veterans for travel and accommodation costs to visit the places where they saw active service. The grants are also available for veteran’s widows, along with spouses and a carer. Alternatively, funding can be provided for veterans to take part in an official commemoration in the UK.

The trips abroad must be taken by the end of 2010; however veterans that have already taken trips but were unaware of Heroes Return can still apply for retrospective funding until 31 January 2011.

If you would like to apply for a grant please call 0845 0000 121 or for more information visit
