I just want to take this opportunity to thank you for organising our boat cruise on the HOGWASH on Saturday. We all had a fantastic time and look forward to the next trip. Please thank the Captain and Danielle for assistance and for taking good care of us while on board. Cheers

1215610899562752Hi Simone,
I would just like to say a big thank you for all of your help organising my work Christmas party cruise last Saturday night. We all had a fantastic night with lots of laughs and excitement.  \We were really impressed at the professionalism of your staff, Dannielle and the skipper Andrew. The food was great, the weather was superb, and we just didn't want the cruise to end.
So thank you once again from all of the Middlemore Hospital Radiology team,
Liz Hooks
