“You were all so very smiley and helpful! Thank you for making our day great – it was very much appreciated!”~ Rachel, Grandparents raising Grandchildren Christmas Party

“I just wanted to thank you for the tickets to last nights Circus Quirkus event. My daughter and I both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  I think my daugther may want to be a clown now – she’s making me call her Fuggles!”  ~ From a grateful Mum
