About the Customer:

The Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre Benevolent Fund is a volunteer-run charity that provides funding to support holistic, occupational and social integration opportunities for serving military patients at DMRC Stanford Hall, that are not provided by public funding.

As part of patients’ rehabilitation journey, it is essential that, in coming to terms with the impact of their illness or injury, patients regain their confidence in being able to attend social gatherings and engage with day to-day activities that reflect their normal life. The rehabilitation benefits are enormous, providing a much-needed boost of motivation and morale, while also allowing them to forget about their injuries and recovery for a few hours.
