Individual-Speakers-Quote

Donna was amazing. She captivated the audience and held the interest of both the children and their parents. Highly inspirational and such a normal person for all her successes, she didn’t mind how many photos she was asked to pose for. I would both use her again and recommend her.

I can only say that we were blessed to have her with us! She was lovely throughout, from before she arrived on the phone with all of us, when she was with us before the Prize Giving ceremony, during and afterwards. She is such a lovely person and made everybody comfortable, and the girls were just so excited to meet her. Everyone loved her.
