People say great things about us
“Hi I just want to say thanks for your story in college Monday I think your very brave what your doing and it touched not only me but my friends as well its really made us think about life in a new way, it’s never worth the risk as we could see from you that it affects other people as well as yourself the choice you make and it’s made me think that I have my whole life ahead of me why waist it by making one stupid mistake so thank you and I wish you all the best in your awareness campaign x” Alex Eveleigh (Student)
“My son is a student at Bridgwater college and was there at your talk today. As a mother I would like to thank you with all my heart for what you did today. My son like hundreds of others rides a motorbike and when I picked him up today all he could talk about was your talk at the college. The impression you left on him was immense and to me as a mum priceless, just the way you have made him and his mates now think is beyond belief.
As a mum I would like to thank you, you are after what you have been through a truly remarkable human being, and if Amy was still here would be the proudest daughter in the world.
May you continue your wonderful work in Amy’s memory and I have no doubt continue to save countless lives. With all my admiration and heartfelt thanks for making my son think twice now when he is on the road, I will never be able to thank you enough. May you continue your wonderful work for years to come. With love from one loving mother to another.” Maggie Eveleigh (Parent)
“Just thought I’d say you’re so inspirational.. The strength you have is truly amazing! Nothing has ever touched me the way your story has, I will be doing a fund raiser for your think amy charity and campaign, thank you for taking your time to come speak to us xx” Kayleigh Jane (Student)
“You came into Bridgwater College today to share your story about your beautiful daughter Amy. I was touched and totally inspired by your courage and determination to get the message across to young people about safe driving.
I just wanted to say thank you – I have 12 and 10 year old Sons and your tragic experience really hit home to me. I would love to help raise money for your campaign with my students, and will be writing it into my curriculum planning. Best wishes” Jane Irons – (BWC Tutor)
“Working in the driving school industry where we spend most of our time trying to educate new drivers to the perils of speed and the possible consequences when things go wrong, we offer Jane Hofmeister (Amy’s mum) the full support of the driving school and will be more than happy to display the Think Amy campaign stickers on our tuition vehicles to help raise the profile.” Kelvin White (Driving School Owner)
“I feel so proud that Think Amy has come so far in such a short time. I feel privileged to be involved with a cause that is so close to my heart.
What happened to Amy and I will always be with me. 3 years down the line and I am still trying to come to terms with what happened. The physical scars have healed but the mental and emotional scars take much longer. But knowing that something good has come out of something so tragic helps me because I know how much it helps others.
So the more that Think Amy can do to take its safer driving message to a wider audience, the happier I will feel that people like me can feel safe on our roads.” Lucy Barber (Road traffic victim, present at the time Amy was killed)
