19th May 2016: DDMT Scholar at Durham reception

19th May 2016:  James Broderick, Joe Parkin and Anthony Dalzell attended a military scholarships reception hosted by Durham University at the Cavalry and Guards Club in London. The honorary host was Field Marshall the Lord Guthrie of Cragiebank GCB LVO OBE.  It was a wonderful opportunity to meet Stephanie Atkinson, whose scholarship DDMT is supporting.

Stephanie was awarded a military scholarship last year to study Law and has now successfully completed her first year.  DDMT is a major funder of the scholarship.  Stephanie's husband Mark was a Royal Marine and was medically discharged after serious injury while serving in Afghanistan.  Stephanie's Law degree will, in time, help the family, including two small children, through the financial challenges they face.
