I just wanted to drop you a line to say a massive thanks for all your help on Pls Like ! I was so happy with the package you put together for us and all of the great help from the VMI team. 

I appreciate it was a big ask for this job but you really went above and beyond to help make my first shoot back after the lockdown a joy. 

Hopefully we will get a chance to do another job together soon, 

All the best,  Steven
