Feedback‘It would be very remiss of me to not write to you to offer my praise and commendation for Josh Thompson in hosting the trip. The growth in confidence, organisation and care for the group shown by Josh was exemplary. You can be justifiably proud of a great member of your team and I have no doubt that he will only grow in stature over the years ahead.’
