The Big Thank You Page

t was a mad idea to start off with but it was amazing how many people came to our aid. We'd like to use this page to thank them all. As we approach the event we know the list will grow:-)

First of all, a big "thanks" to Rebecca Peppiette, Assistant Co-ordinator for BBC Music Live, Scotland, whose faith in us kept us going and put up with endless cries for help. Without her help and guidance we would have floundered very quickly.

Having got the show on the road the people we have to send the HUGEST of thanks to are our pals Mike and Sarah - they kept us fed, watered, stress free - and looking our best for the camera during the tour - we couldn't have enjoyed it half as much without them.

Thanks goes to Arnold Clark Automobiles Ltd for supplying a car free of charge to get us about during the tour -they were just great.

We'd also like to thank those kind souls who have been generous enough to given their time, encouragement and excellent venues to make sure we got our full alphabet.
We're not sure how we would have reacted to our mad request but they all took it in their stride - we were really very impressed by the professionalism and enthusiasm of everyone who offered their help.
