Matt Dawson, television personality and ex England Rugby player, met members of DMWS in Cyprus, during a recent visit to the Island.

DMWS Welfare Officers, Elaine, Tina and Matthew were delighted to meet Matt and to tell him about the work of DMWS, when he visited the Health and Wellbeing Fair at RAF Akrotiri on the 6th April.

He also got to rub shoulders with everyone's favourite Lion, Lenny.

Matt of Strictly, Celebrity Masterchef, Question of Sport and of course England Rugby fame, learned how DMWS support the armed forces community in Cyprus when they are receiving medical treatment. The families suppported often have to face upsetting and stressful times alone - one of the many disadvantages of living away from their own support network of familiy and friends.  Matt was told how DMWS plug that gap by providing practical and emotional assistance to patients and liaising with clinical and miliary staff to ensure that our service families needs are fully met.   

Thanks for yout time Matt. Sounds like the day was a ROARING success...
