A FAREHAM-based insurance firm is setting up a £50,000 fund to help military charities.

Towergate Insurance is creating the military charities grant fund to support specific projects by organisations that can demonstrate how they will benefit veterans.

It will look particularly at military charities focused on social exclusion, family breakdown, poverty, mental health and addictions.

The fund will accept applications from September 1. For more information go to
