“Thank You so much for playing on Saturday… feedback was fantastic and the band went down a storm! ….. Following expenses we managed to raise just under £600 for Help for Heroes and will hopefully repeat the event in next year!”
“At church today masses of people stopped me to say how wonderful Tutbury were last night, and once again I heard stories of tears rolling down cheeks during Highland Cathedral; it was immensely moving, a sort of heaven touches earth moment, but before we all concentrate on that (highlight as it was) the rest of the programme was really super too. I’m quite sure too that over the coming days all sorts of folk will stop me in the street to say exactly the same.”
Kit Bowen – Chairman Strathpeffer Pavillion
