“To Jo and everyone at Running Deer!
Thank you to everyone for their support, hard work and acceptance. I know you have made a difference in the lives of two young people that I work with. They have a scrapbook each full of good memories and new experiences to prove it.
Good luck with all your plans and endeavours. All the best – Mark”
