Thank you for your email, and for inviting me to present the prizes at this year’s event. It is indeed a very important event for the community and always a great success. I know this sort of event requires a huge amount of organisation and the hard work that goes into it is commendable. I am glad to hear so much money was raised. Kind Regards, Michael
