Remembrance Sunday

11 November 2010

As the nation prepares to stand for two minutes in silent homage to honour its war dead this Remembrance Sunday (14 November) the Big Lottery Fund announced its latest grants for veterans from across England and Wales to go on poignant visits back to the places they saw action 65 years ago.

Remembering the heroism of WWII Veterans

Since launching in April 2009, the Big Lottery Fund’s Heroes Return 2 programme has awarded more than £7.7 million and paid for more than 11,300 veterans, widows, spouses and carers from across the UK to make commemorative trips, home and abroad, to honour and remember those that did not return from the battlefields of 1939-1945.

    MattWould you be ieretestnd in having a presentation on starting a business and/or buying a business or franchise? I am a veteran (Navy, O-5) and a business attorney who represents people doing this. I am in Richmond, so Norfolk would be the most accessible place for me to do a presentation if you are ieretestnd in trying it out.Jim Wilson
