MP backs WW2 vets’ bid to retrace steps

A Doncaster MP is urging the town’s Second World War veterans to sign up to a scheme allowing them to visit the battlegrounds where they fought.

The Heroes Return 2 programme uses Lottery funds to allow veterans to re-visit places they saw active service - and Rosie Winterton, MP for Doncaster Central, is backing the programme.

She said: “I’m delighted to be able to highlight this excellent scheme, which allows our heroes to return to the places where they saw active combat.

The grants are available for veterans, their widows, along with spouses and a carer. Details at or on 0845 0000 121.
