"Just wanted to say thanks to you and Rob for all your hard work on the Virtual Circus. It was a wonderful performance and we can’t believe how much more confident our daughter became with yours (and Karen’s) help. As you witnessed when she first did the song, she really lacks confidence in her abilities. What you did with her brought out a totally different side, which we don’t see very often and it was wonderful! She also learnt it’s ok to not get things 100% right every time and to just keep trying"- NHS CCG project Parent
