  • Dear Lisa, Maria and Tessa,

    Thank you all for your amazing support throughout last year. It really was a hideous experience, but every time I got to the point I couldn’t breathe and I spoke to one of you, I felt instantly strong again. You really are a fabulous team.

    When Margaret left, I was really worried, but Maria you picked up the baton and ran with it brilliantly. Then when Maria you obviously had to put your own family first, Tessa picked up the baton and just kept running for me. Lisa you made me giggle and reassured me whenever I was about to cry or hide in a cupboard, often picking up the phone to check I was ok – so very kind. Crackerjack will now forever remind me of you!

    I will recommend you to any of my friends who decide they need to take this brave step. You are simply the best. I hope you all enjoy your acorns, and remind you of how much you’ve helped people like me get out of unhappy situations. As they say, from acorns mighty oaks grow.

    Many thanks to you all,

    I kind of miss you!!
