Dear Charlotte and Mary,

On behalf of all of us at WIP thank you so much for organising such a wonderful performance at the New Beginnings Art Awards at the Lightbox - hard to believe it was the 9th year.

We have had so much lovely feedback on the event and as the High Sheriff of Surrey said in her note attached - a 'ray of light' in these dark times.

The performance  was a real inspiration for all of us, especially women and their families that were at the event. I was personally blown away by the pride of the daughters in their mums being able to perform at the event.

Of all the years I have attended this was my favourite with a wonderful atmosphere - which you had a big part in helping to create.

We hope we can work together in the future and as promised I will put you in touch with our Manchester team.

Best wishes,


Kate Paradine
