CAROLINE Dinenage is encouraging veterans to sign up to a grant scheme.

The Gosport MP is supporting the 
Big Lottery Fund’s Heroes Return programme.

To mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the scheme is offering veterans from the Second World War funding towards travel and accommodation expenses to enable them and their partner to go back to places where they served.

Ms Dinenage said: ‘This is a tremendous opportunity for veterans to go back to the places where they served and remember the sacrifices made by their fallen comrades.’
