April 2019

Five years ago The Hummingbird Centre opened her doors to the Community of Bicester and surrounding villages, supporting those affected by cancer and living with cancer.

Over the years they have expanded, provided new services and seen their foot fall increase.

The dedication, professionalism, passion that the team of volunteers bring to The Hummingbird Centre is what makes them so unique in what they do, they can empathise with their guests and guide them accordingly as The Hummingbirds have been cleverly put together by their Founder, Mechelle Harris who believes that everyone should be encouraged to carry out their own dreams and passions, as you have to enjoy volunteering.

During the years The Hummingbird Centre have been recognized for the work that they do, their greatest achievement was to be awarded with an MBE for Voluntary Services last year.

Mechelle was asked some time ago what does The Hummingbird Centre mean to her? To which she replied "I have a team that's enabled my Dads promise to happen and grow but most importantly we've been able to provide a service to a community that was not there before"

Will Mechelle ever stop – short answer NO – there is one ultimate vision that she would like to create for the People of Bicester and surrounding villages and that is Bicester should have their own Hospice but it won't be like a Hospice more like a Sanctuary for the entire family to experience a peaceful passing.

I strongly believe Mechelle and her team will make this happen so watch this space.

Happy Birthday The Hummingbird Centre, congratulations for all that you have achieved and give to the People of Bicester and surrounding villages.
