Story

 

Hello,

Thank you for visiting my Just Giving page, and thank you all for any donations made.

I am very proud to present some kind words of encouragement I received from one of my favourite actors, I could not have put it any better;

"My experience of playing George VI gave me immense admiration for those who struggle with stammering. I found I stopped focusing on stammering as a problem and was struck instead by the bravery and dignity of those engaged in the battle. They've become heroes to me; people who daily take their courage in their hands to do what others simply take for granted. Getting to know such people - and those whose business it to help them - has turned out to be one of the great privileges of my life."

Colin Firth.

Wish me luck!!

Joe
