February 2019

February is upon us and we have already started to become busy with new sponsorship, donations, taking part in community events, launching our very first ever Glamour and Glitz Gala and welcoming sponsors to The Hummingbird Centre.

The White Hart, Bicester

The White Hart Bicester have taken on The Hummingbird Centre as their local charity to support, 2nd & 3rd February they held a weekend of events raising funds on behalf of ourselves, Mechelle Harris joined them Sunday evening to say thank you for what The White Hart will be doing this year, the team look forward in taking part in some of their events.


Chipping Norton Golf Team

We welcomed a group of Golfers from Chipping Norton Golf Club who every year chooses a local charity to sponsor and support over the three days – it’s an annual event attracting many golfers. Mechelle along with Michelle Peterson attended their final evening to say thank you and introduced them to The Hummingbird Centre explaining what we do and what the plans for the future will be.  We would like to thank Chipping Norton Golfers for making us feel so welcome and for raising just over £7k.

Bicester Charity Volunteer Fair

The Hummingbird Centre play a big part in the Community and we were pleased to be invited to the Bicester Charity Volunteer Fair, held at the Bicester Leisure Centre, it was an event held locally for students from Coopers School and The Bicester School to meet local charities and find out about opportunities within volunteering. It was great to hear that the local teenagers of Bicester knew about The Hummingbird Centre and wanted to hear about what we do and what they can do to be part of the centre. It's important to The Hummingbird Centre that we partake in events like these as the teenagers of today will one day be The Hummingbird Centre's future.


Tesco’s Superstore, Bicester

Bryan Taunton, Community Champion visited  The Hummingbird Centre during February as the store wanted to donated an array of make-up, cosmetics, candles, room oils, Scholl insoles and moisturisers for us to give to our guests or for raffle prizes.  Support comes to us in so many ways and this bundle of products was greatly received.

The Hummingbird Centre Glamour and Glitz Gala

For the first time ever The Hummingbird Centre will be holding their first ever Gala to be hosted by The Tythe Barn, it will be an evening full of glamour in so many ways we are sure it will be an evening to remember.  We are extremely lucky to have Jacqueline Faye, X Factor contestant, an array of splendid auction and raffle prizes donated by local businesses, as well as some other surprises which will be revealed on the night.
