A GRANT scheme that offers funding for war veterans to return to the place they fought has been launched in Chesterfield.

The Big Lottery Fund’s Heroes Return has given funding to those who fought in the Second World War to return, in an attempt to reconcile their past.

The launch event was organised by Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins and he was joined by the Big Lottery’s Mick McGrath, Joe Roberts, the chair of Staveley Veterans Association and George McCracken, who served throughout North Asia during the war.
