Dear Donna,

Thank you very much for your help! This is greatly appreciated.

You should receive the brochures and posters witthin a few days, to be distributed to your membres and at the Festival (sounds like a great initiative this Festival!).

Also, I’m pasting below a blurb that you can send by Email and use on your website.

I’ll have the links added to our website (this may take a few days).

Best regards
