You were bloody brilliant Neil, no words in the world could ever begin to explain the emotions I felt yesterday knowing Jen is set for life and it is all down to you, thank you so much…

I would like to thank both yourself (Jane Gilchrist) and Neil Fearn for your earnest work these past number of years. Everything you have done is greatly appreciated. Most importantly you have put me in funds which will allow me the peace of mind that I can call upon a private consultant to assist with my injuries and not be entirely dependent nor reliant on the NHS. Thank you both for the sterling work you have done.

Hello Neil, spent the last few hours compiling many texts to say thank you and every one either sounds corny or does not come close to what we want to say or how we feel about what you have achieved so you will just have to wait until it sinks in . Thank you so much you have ensured J will be financially sound for the rest of her life and to me it’s a dream come true for her, thank you so much.
