The Hummingbird Centre supports children affected by cancer during the school holidays

The Hummingbird Centre realise the importance children play in supporting a loved one, albeit Mum, Dad, Sister, Brother, or Grandparents so we have decided to dedicate one day a week during the school holidays to the children of Bicester who are or have been affected by Cancer.

It's important that families who have children who have been affected by cancer are given the same support as adult's, it's amazing how pragmatic children can be when they are faced with challenges.
Here at The Hummingbird Centre we realised there was a gap that somehow needed filling with the help and guidance of the team who are and have been working with children we developed our Family Day during the school holidays.

These days will take place on the Wednesday from 12.00 to 3.00 pm, starting from the age on 8 up to 15, depending on how long they have off school will dictates how many days we do, August 2016 we did 4 Wednesdays. One of which we took the children to Folly Foot Stables for a respite day working with the horses out in the countryside, enabling them to gain trust, confidence and share their own stories if the wished.

Our team who run the family days are trained to work with children, DBS checked and insured, we also have a child counsellor on site should one be needed.
