January 2021

Message from Mechelle Harris, Founder of The Hummingbird Centre:

Like many charities we never anticipated starting 2021 in the same situation as 2020, with our doors still closed to those affected by cancer. As Founder, I started my year thinking where will funding come from and what will the impact be for 2021 with the potential loss of fund raising for this year.

I always find it extremely humbling, even now when the economic growth is difficult spare cash within families is tight, people still dig deep to support us, for that I am truly grateful.

The start of 2021 bought with it some new stories that we would like to share, kicking off with Bicester Town Colts U11's Football Team.


Bicester Town Colts Under 11's Football Team

August last year we shared the amazing story with you about Bicester Town Colts Stars U11's who supported us by raising over £1,200 through a sponsored fitness challenge during August, the monies raised was to be split equally between The Hummingbird Centre and the team allowing them to purchase new training gear which would carry The Hummingbird's logo.

A very proud player showed off their kit today and their Mum kindly sent us a photograph.

We are extremely proud of the team and hope to one day meet them in person to say thank you – you never know we may be able to sort out a football match (not sure we can guarantee the Boss Lady won't cheat!!)

Support Received

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Buckingham Group Contracting for their amazing donation received this month after they decided to choose The Hummingbird Centre, of which the funds will go towards our Equine Therapy for children.

The Akeman Golf Society when they could play golf last year decided that every time they played matches a donation would be made towards ourselves.

The Athena Group have chosen The Hummingbird Centre as their chosen charity for 2021, not only bringing different ways of raising funds but knowledge as well, which can be just as important for a young growing charity.
