“I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you so much for the amazing job you did on Saturday for us. The jokes were top notch (and thankfully 100% appropriate!) and many of our guests commented on what a great job you did. Seeing you work the room for the auction made me realise how much I’d under estimated how hard it was to do and I was so relieved we had taken FR events advice to hire you.”
Georgina Lobo, private charity event
‘We just wanted to say a huge thank you for Saturday night. For us it was a great way to celebrate Scannappeal’s 30th Anniversary and your help and support in running the auction made such a difference with the money raised. We are looking at having raised over £26,000 from the evening with a high proportion coming from the main auction. Robert Lindsay also wanted us to pass on to you how impressed he was, he attends a lot of similar events and said you were one of the best he’d ever seen! We of course completely agree! Thank you again so much for your on-going support we really appreciate it”
Hannah Chard - Fundraising officer, Scannappeal

“On behalf of The Rotary Club of Wokingham thank you so much for the effort you put into yesterday evening’s auction. I am certain, without your unique blend of humour and cajoling, the audience would not be so willing to put their hands in their pockets. It was a master class in how to retain people’s attention made even more challenging by the intermittent failure of the PA system! How is your throat today? On a personal note I thoroughly enjoyed your company, both on the course and during dinner, even though your tore my reputation to shreds!!!! – though all for a good cause. Once we have a date for next year we will be in touch.”
David Gold, Rotary Club of Wokingham
