Dear David, I must express my very grateful thanks for all the help you gave me for my first attempt at organising a Burns Supper. Your contribution with both your piping and your speech on Burns was just excellent and so many members have expressed how much they enjoyed the evening. The Captain for next year has said he would like you to come back in 2020. Kind regards.

David, I just wanted to say a massive Thank You for last night. Your playing and speaking was, as usual, top notch and really brought something special to the night. The faces of all the children watching as you addressed the haggis were great, true amazement. I'm sure they couldn't understand a word but they certainly won't forget it! Thanks once again for making the event something special, regards,

David was amazing and really added a special touch to our big day. I was close to tears when my we approached the church to hear David playing 'Flower of Scotland' as a surprise for my father. So many of our guests wanted to have a photograph taken with David in his fabulous outfit.
