The Lord Kitchener Memorial Holiday Centre is pleased to help publicise this Royal British Legion initiative.
For the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landings in June 2019 the Royal British Legion, in partnership with Arena Travel, have chartered a ship, the MV Boudicca, to provide a fully funded tour for 300 D-Day Veterans. Each veteran is able to bring one carer who will also be fully funded.
Priority will be given to veterans who participated in the D-Day Landings, with the remaining spaces allocated to Normandy Veterans via a ballot.
To take up this offer you MUST follow RBL's conditions and download the forms from their website, complete the eligibility form and return it to Arena Travel by Monday 4th February Monday 4th March (extended)

We are delighted to welcome ex-members of the emergency services to the facilities offered by the Lord Kitchener Memorial Holiday Centre.
Until recently the Centre, at 10 Kirkley Cliff, Lowestoft, was governed by a Charity Commission trust deed permitting them to offer holiday accommodation to ex-merchant and ex-armed forces personnel and their spouses.
The trustees are delighted to announce that the terms of this deed have now been expanded to include ex-emergency service personnel. We look forward to welcoming retired police, fire service. ambulance and other emergency service personnel from all parts of the United Kingdom to the Centre in time for our 100th anniversary year in 2019.
