DMWS Welfare Officer Ashley Winter along with Mike Davey from The Veteran Support Centre, Herefordshire, have been acknowledge for their outstanding work helping isolated veterans during the pandemic at The Armed Forces Community Lockdown Awards In Partnership With Hugh James and Pathfinder Magazine. They have won the award for Most Outstanding Charitable Contribution in Lockdown in association with Inzpire.

The judging panel had some difficult decisions to make due to the number of fantastic stories we read about from the forces community and their efforts during lockdown.

I’d like to thank everyone who took time to nominate someone, congratulations to our winners and shortlisted nominees, thanks to the judges for their time and thanks to the sponsors for their support throughout.
