As previously announced, DMWS are delighted to be welcoming HRH The Countess of Wessex to their Headquarters in Andover on Wednesday 25th May 2016.
HRH will meet members of DMWS staff and some of our service users and will hear about our rich history in medical welfare. For those of you who don’t know, DMWS has been providing medical welfare support to the Armed Forces since 1943, across the UK Germany and Cyprus and on deployment in all major conflicts since World War 2. DMWS provide emotional and practical support to the armed forces community (regulars, reservists, ex-forces and families) when they are in hospital, hospice, rehabilitation, recovery or receiving ongoing treatment in a community based health facility. We are proud to be based in the South of England, from where we co-ordinate our staff across the world.
We would be delighted to welcome you to cover the event. There will be an opportunity to interview staff and service users as well as record the Countess arriving and leaving.
Should you be interested in attending, please contact me today and I will provide you with timings and a plan for the visit. As a smaller charity, an event like this is an important and exciting for us and we would love to share it with local community.
We very much hope to see you there – there may also be cake!
