Hello, James - project is going fine - we set up the Chrysalis Centre, a small residential block for enthusing and stimulating young people in deprived areas. Yes, we went to the theatre - actually a pantomime - at the National Theatre with all of the Butterflies last Saturday. We need to do more on performance next year. Best wishes for Christmas.
