Hope you are well and apologies for not getting in touch sooner after my charity event, which with your fantastic help, raised a total of £5334.06 for the charity, North London Hospice. You were terrific on the day and the feedback from attendees has been really positive. I would like to secure a date with you for next year which I very much hope you will be able to make - Kevin Young, United Living - golf day

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

Well what can I say. A great evening of entertainment from you that helped us to make our dinner a success. Thank you so much for a wonderful evening. Before you left I did ask if there was anyone you could recommend to be our after dinner speaker in 12 months time. Problem is you have set the bar high, however is there someone you can recommend? Thank you again for a great evening - Colin McFarlin, Chartered insurance Institute of Brighton
