and was so impressed that I thought I must get her along to my
party - she is a fantastic vocalist and her performance was superb.
I was so delighted that £700 was raised for her children's
project, which is such a great cause."

wonderful surprise that our Foundation has received such a fantastic
sum. We were blown away by it and a big thank you goes to Janet
and all involved!"
