“A massive thank you from all at WildFox. You're energy and meticulous attention to detail helped us deliver a special atmosphere that was in fitting with the effort our participants put into to make it to the finish line!”

Really great to work with you, no question, you are a standout compere, terrific voice and great attitude.

Cateran Yomp: Morag Neville, Event co-ordinator at Alliance Trust (principal sponsors of the event) wrote:Thank you so much for all your help on Saturday at the Yomp. I am surprised you had any voice left by the end – I was so amazed that you were still able to be as enthusiastic with the last Yompers as you were with the first ones through. That is some skill! We were so grateful and your enthusiasm made a huge difference to so many people. Thank you very much indeed and we are already looking forward to next year!

Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon: Elizabeth Robertson from Mercy Corps (one of the charities at this event) wrote:I just wanted to drop you a line very quickly to say THANK YOU for your amazing job on Saturday!! You were a great compere and kept our many wet and tired volunteers motivated to the end!

The Cateran Yomp 2017: Louise Orford from The Soldiers' Charity (charity beneficiary) wrote I just wanted to drop you a line to say a huge thank you for another fantastic Yomp weekend. Your enthusiasm at the start line and the Bronze finish is brilliant, I can never understand how you keep going at that level for so long, such great energy and we know all the participants love having you there and it gives them a real boost!
