National Carers Award

“I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you for a brilliant night at our ‘conference’ on the Seabourne Spirit in Greece a couple of weeks ago. Your gig was hilarious (as always), nag on the mark and is still being talked about – for good not bad by the way… Some very funny calls still being used by us, but I guess that’s what you do! Thank you again for making our final night absolutely one to remember”
