This being the case, I thought I may as well throw my two penneth into the fray.
When I first decided to put on a Big Green Weekend last year, many people thought I had no chance of pulling it off in ten weeks, and so held back from offering their support as they had no wish to be associated with failure. (You know who you are.)
Chris McCafferty, however, was the VERY FIRST, BAR NONE, to email me straight to offer her whole and unconditional support. Member of her staff in London questioned the wisdom of this but she over-rode them as it was something she felt passionate about. Sure enough, she did what I'd asked and came along and opened the proceedings, as again she did this year.
I hope she enjoys her retirement. It's very well earned in my point of view.
