Blackthorn Classic Car Show Team visit The Hummingbird Centre

Eight members of the organising team of the Blackthorn Classic Car Show attended an informal gathering at the Hummingbird Cancer Support and Therapy Centre in Launton last evening and were warmly welcomed by Founder Mechelle Harris and a number of Hummingbird volunteers.

The Hummingbird Centre was selected as the BCCS preferred charity this year by the organising team. The fact that it was a local charity run for the benefit of the Bicester community, the obvious passion and inspiration of Founder Mechelle Harris and the fact that it is run entirely by committed volunteers resulted in the Hummingbird Centre being the first choice from a small short list of deserving causes.

A brief presentation was made by John Henderson, leader of the BCCS organising team, following which he presented a cheque for £3250 to Mechelle. Mechelle thanked the BCCS and explained that the money was to go towards a much needed new craft facility and equipment for the Beauty Room at the centre.

As classic car enthusiasts the BCCS team enjoy the challenge and get immense pleasure from putting on the Blackthorn Classic Car Show. That we are able to make a meaningful contribution to our community makes it doubly rewarding. This was the second year of the BCCS with over 300 classic vehicles in the Showground this year and an estimated 1750 visitors.
