I am absolutely loving being in the group, you are helping me in lots of ways, and I am grateful. It’s genuinely one of the best things I have ever done and I do sincerely mean that. I am already really looking forward to the weeks ahead. I am excited for my trip to Edinburgh on Tuesday with Grant to do that interview. I never thought I would be doing such cool things!
“If I had the money, I would give you the funding you need to allow Works+ to go on for ever!”
