HAVING seen the news reports on June 6 regarding D Day, it seems the Government may not sponsor next year's event as it is thought that any WW2 veterans will be too old to make the trip.I would like to know if this is in fact the case, or are there veterans out there who would like to make the trip, but are unable to do so without sponsorship?I would also like to know if there is anyone out there that cares about this, as I do, and has some ideas about how they could help. I can't be the only person grateful to have been born in peacetime. Our lives could have been very different if it wasn't for these brave souls and they deserve our respect. If a lot of us do a little thing, we could make this happen. For starters I offer free transport to Bristol Airport from Weston for any veterans travelling to next year's event. This is not a publicity stunt, but to honour my father's memory. He survived WW2 but passed away last year. JULIE LUCKHAM - Worle Cars, Worle
