We would like to take this opportunity to thank those who nominated us for the awards and to the sponsors for giving us the recognition.


May didn't stop at the awards, we also put on our own Fashion Show, 22 May 2017 held at The Littlebury Hotel.

The idea was to bring together the small retailers of Bicester Town Centre and other charities to show what we have to offer, those who took part were Options Beauty & The Boutique, Sainsbury's TU, Paula Jane Boutique, Audley Hat Hire, Shaw Trust, Salvation Army, and Sue Ryder. To bring the glamour and glitz, hair was done by local hairdressers Kizzy and her team from FNKY and the glitz was done by Debbie Mac and her team Lucinda Chadwick and Megan Thomas. We had an array of raffle prizes provided by Barret & Co Photography, Pizza Express, Bicester and Denis's Restaurant and The Copper Kitchen, Hamper of wine, and Cup Cakes provided by Bicester Buffets all of which the local businesses donated. The evening needed entertainment which was provided by Him 'N' Him, our very own in house MC who bought their own story to the evening and everything was captured on film by Ian Jones Photography.

Everyone pulling together as a community raising funds for The Hummingbird Centre which totalled £870
