A nice surprise with a golden envelope in Poole this afternoon...!
Next week is the return of The People's Projects - where you have the chance to decide where up to £150,000 of National Lottery funding is spent in our region.
The People's Projects is a partnership between ITV and the Big Lottery Fund to help community groups improve people's lives.
We've been back to two winners from last year - The Ragroof Players in Margate, and Rising Voices in Poole - to see what a difference the money has made.
To mark the 69th anniversary of Operation Market Garden, WW2 veteran Wally Smith from Ramsgate will be revisiting the place he fought in Normandy.
Wally will be supported by the Big Lottery Fund's Heroes Return 2 programme which has helped more than 54,000 veterans.
The veteran will be visiting the scene of one of the most audacious Allied offensives in WW2, Operation Market Garden.
It was the largest airborne operation in history and is awarding grants to veterans to return to the places they saw action.
He joined the Army in 1941 and served at Arnhem as a Lance Corporal with the 4th Battalion Dorsetshire Regiment.
