Hi Bluey

I just wanted to say a huge thanks for coming to my Son’s party last weekend.

Everyone enjoyed it and said how good it was. I can’t believe how well behaved and fixated the children were…amazing.

Thanks again

Just a quick email to express my thanks for the professionalism of your entertainers. They were all punctual, respectful and helpful – perfect!

Clown Bluey was funny and not scary at all – he had been on our grounds before and managed to have quite a following again this year.

Everyone enjoyed themselves and we’ve had lots of praise.

Many thanks again and please pass on our thanks to all concerned. And thank you for being so patient with me, as always.

Good morning Bluey

May I just say thank you so much for making our Prom at the Botley Grange Hotel a really wonderful and memorable occasion. I’m only sorry the weather and later the other hotel guests rather undermined our plans. You did us proud!

Dear Bluey,

Well, there we are, it’s all over and what a success this years show was! As you have realised we attracted record crowds on both days, with the result that even our overflow car park overflowed. Customers were still queuing to get in at nearly 2.00 o’clock.

We would like to thank you very much for your efforts. Even as the show grows bigger we will never forget that without attractions such as yourself we do not have a show. The young audience looked entertained every time I came whizzing past, even if we did not catch a glimpse of you ourselves, it certainly looked deep with keen helpers!

With very best wishes from us all.

Re The Children’s Show in Monaco:

I would like to thank Francien Giraudi, President of the Les Infants de Frankie Association, for inviting Clowns International to stage our International Clowns Show, in the magnificent Chapiteau de Fontvieille in Monaco. It was an honour to both Direct and take part in such a fantastic setting. My thanks also to Francien and her committee who made such super arrangements for us from Nice onwards: the accommodation and restaurants were terrific. My thanks must also go to my co-Festival Organiser, Chris “L.O.” Stone, who took on the unenviable task of organising all our air bookings as well as looking after FOH in Monaco – a great weight off my shoulders!

Finally, may say a huge thank you to all my clown colleagues, whether you were performing ‘in the ring’ or FOH – you all did a magnificent job and made a lot a children very, very happy! I’m very proud of you and of Clowns International!

Hi Bluey,

We just wanted to say a big thank you for the entertainment you provided at our daughter’s birthday party last Friday (23 July), she and all the other kids really enjoyed themselves, as did all the adults and parents who stayed during the party.

Lauren is still describing parts of the act and is particularly proud to have removed your underpants!

Well done and thanks, we would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.

Hi Bluey,

Happy New Year and I hope you had a lovely Christmas.

The feedback we received from our client Royal Sun Alliance was extremely positive and we were delighted with how it went.

You were busy making balloon animals when I left and I didn’t want to distract you. Hopefully we’ll get the chance to work again in the future.

Kind regards,

Kim, I just wanted to say a big thank you for the entertainers you provided for the launch event at The Priory in Worksop yesterday. They were all excellent. They really made the event, and in fact gave an extra boost to Marks & Spencer who were cutting the ribbon on their new Simply Food store just after our own ceremony. Lots of positive feedback and compliments.

Dear Bluey & Flossie,

Thank you both for an engaging performance on Saturday. Lots of people commented on the sophistication and variations of Flossie’s face painting and Bluey’s balloon creations were just stunning.

All the best.

Very dear Clown Bluey:

Thank you so very much for your kind message. I appreciate it and enjoy very much.

I was taking a very careful look at the World Wide Smiles Mission website. I cried a lot, and at the same time, it makes me happy to know that there are people out there who have such a big heart as to do what you do. To take a smile, a little happiness, to children who go through such a hard life, is a blessing, a gift from God indeed. If I appreciated and respected you before as a Clown, now I respect you, I admire you as an incredible human being, I thank you for such a job. God bless you, your partners in that mission, and all the people you make laugh in those regions, so much in need of laughter…

Please take care, keep in touch, my best wishes for you and your lovely wife.

Other Years:

Dear Clown Bluey, Thank you for your support and friendship – we appreciate it so much. Please accept this letter as a sincere thank you for coming along to our Open Day last week and for entertaining the children. I know that everybody thoroughly enjoyed your visit and it was much appreciated by one and all! It is impossible to put into words how thankful I am for the kindness and generosity that our house receives from our community; you are so kind to support us, so I thank you from my heart. As you know, Chestnut Tree House is filled with fun and laughter every day; it seems that however poorly our children are they still manage a smile! You have helped make that possible and we sincerely thank you!

Yours sincerely

Clown Bluey, Thank you so much for supporting the Sherborne Castle Country Fair again this year. It was lovely to see the children flocking around you and enjoying the day. We are particularly grateful to our regular professional entertainers for helping us to really put the show on the map and to make it the spectacularly popular event it has. I think the show was again a great success. Good luck with the rest of the season and I do hope you can join us again next year on Monday 28th May. Once again, very many thanks.

Jeremy Howard, Events/Attractions Co-ordinator, Sherborne Castle Country Fair, Dorset

Dear Clown Bluey, The success of the Show stands or falls on the support they receive from people taking part, from the musicians to craft and trade stand holders to those entering competitions. The list is endless and there are so many more who are not ‘on parade’ but work tirelessly on the day. I am still not quite sure that every single person on Monday realised that money was being raised to support children’s charities, but the charities certainly do and your involvement has touched thousands of disabled children and their families. Thank you so much. Regards,

Maggie Mooge, Appeals Manager, Sherborne Castle Country Fair, Dorset

Dear Clown Bluey, I would like to pass on our thanks to you and the rest of your team for the excellent entertainment you gave to our employees and their families at our company open day.

Thank you once again for your participation, we look forward to seeing you at Messier-Dowty again in the future. Best regards,

Dear Clown Bluey, I thought I’d write a quick letter to say hello before things get too busy here during Ramadan and to thank you for a wonderful show. It was a great success, over 300 attended, and I think I’ve had every one of them on the phone wanting to know where they can get an animal balloon! Thank you once again.

Dear Clown Bluey,

Just a quick note to say how pleased we all were with the success of Taylor’s Birthday Party on Sunday, and most of that was down to you. We have had thank you notes from some of the children already, saying how much they enjoyed the party. When you see so much pleasure it makes all the effort worthwhile. Thanks very much again and I hope we can arrange another visit this side of the water for you very soon. Best wishes Signed Andrea Sheppard

Golden Wedding Anniversary Party, Concorde Jazz Club, Eastleigh, Hants. April ‘98:

The children and the ‘grown ups’, who are all children at heart, were delighted with the unexpected pleasure of not only a clown to entertain them, but one who could work miracles with balloons sculpted for them to take home. All our family and friends were enchanted by you and are still talking about the day that you helped to make such a happy and special one. Thank you Clown Bluey.

Signed Alfred and Jean Hinton.

Dear Clown Bluey, Excellent – super – the kids loved you. Loved your balloon making – you were very cheerful – definitely welcome you back!
