July 2018

The Hummingbird Centre is not only about encouraging our guests and empowering them to take control of their cancer rather than the cancer controls them. 

We are also unique as we encourage our Volunteers to sometimes step out of their own comfort zone and face their own fears which can sometimes hold them back and that’s exactly what happened with one of our team.

It's often commented amongst the team never let the Boss Lady hear of your passion or desire to try something because she will encourage you to do just that, even when she’s not around!!!

Well Tash, we hear that’s what happened with you my dear!! Fancy mentioning to your Team Leader you could Moon Walk like Michael Jackson, because from what we understand this was the start of something great.

Tash knew David Boakes who was an International Michael Jackson impersonator and as performed for many famous people as well as at many world famous arenas, jokingly Tash thought it would be a good idea to see if we could get our guests to Moon Walk or, better still, let’s see if we could put on a show – what do you mean we!!

The Boss Lady, with the encouragement of Tash’s Team Leader, gave her a blank canvass to do just that put on a Michael Jackson show, she had to design the poster, leaflet, tickets, find a venue, negotiate a price as well as drum up business for the event.

Tash worked with our Creative Designer for the poster, tickets, and leaflets, along with her Team Leader they found a venue, all of which took place Friday 6th July @ 7.30pm, the doors opened to a full house at The Highfields Sports and Social Club.

The event was a sellout, David Boakes aka Michael was a great hit and the venue ROCKED!!
