Ms Campbell said veterans sometimes face trauma, homelessness and poverty, as well as a need for retraining once they return to civilian life. With the help of the newly-launched Veterans’ Lottery, she hopes to secure funding for projects to help change the lives of those who served their country.

‘At the same time, we must also be aware of what’s happening today, and those veterans that are in desperate need for help and support. We can’t change the past, but can learn from it and shape the future.’
