‘Eleanor and I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for your hard work, support and guidance over the recent months, and specifically in preparing for and directing last weeks JSM. We both thought we had been extremely well supported by you all and that the outcome wouldn’t have been possible without your involvement and guidance. We were relieved and very satisfied with the outcome following a very difficult few years since sustaining my brain injury and are very grateful for your time and efforts. Sinead, could you please pass on our thanks to Matthew Fry and Francis Hutchinson who again were very much a part of the JSM’s success given all of their work’.
