What People Are Saying

I have been privileged to know Irene for thirty years, and in that time we have faced good and sad times as individuals. She has always remained positive, resilient, motivated and focused on what she wishes to achieve. She plans carefully and with attention to detail. As a popular and gifted piper I know her current, inspired project will bring pleasure to those who hear her across seven continents, and her target to raise £50,000 is admirable and achievable with her tenacity and exceptional energy. I for one wish Irene all the best.

I have known Irene for many years and I continue to be amazed at the passion and energy she puts in to her piping, she is truly an asset to us. She always puts in one hundred per cent effort and she has always helped our band even before she officially became a member. We are incredibly proud of Irene’s latest adventure to raise £50,000 by piping across the 7 continents and know that her dogged determination will ensure her latest venture is a huge success, she is an inspiration to us all.

I’ve known Irene for around 6 years through working with her in Dorset Custody Suites, she is the Forensic Nurse Practitioner. Irene is a friendly, fun girl; she tells it straight and won’t take any nonsense, which, believe me, is an excellent quality to have in our job, because nonsense is an every day occurrence! When Irene told me about her latest quest, I was amazed – not only of her passion and enthusiasm, but also, that she was pursuing what is sure to be an adventure of a lifetime whilst supporting her chosen charities
