Hi John, the guests were blown away and my Dad especially was raving about how great you were. My only regret is that I didn't see more of you personally !

Thank so much! xx

Your coin bending seems to have everyone gobsmacked! The feedback was great. Well done for getting round everyone, really good effort on your part, and it played a big part in everyone's enjoyment of the evening. I'll keep you in mind for the future.
