What Our Visitors Are Saying

“Meeting so many different people from different experiences and backgrounds, and the team working together for a common purpose [was the best thing about volunteering].”

Moira Speed, Volunteer

“I love being a Foundation Friend. We got to book tickets for my son well before they sold out and he really had fun, because he got to sit in the front row. The discounts on tickets and coffee are also great!”

Hani Sharaf, Foundation Friend

“We were delighted to partner with you all on the events and would like to commend the passion, dedication and professionalism that all of your wonderful team brought to the proceedings.”
