Fundraising for The Hummingbird Centre

We support those affected by cancer to let our guests know they are not alone


What is 10k for £10k – LEJOG part 2?

The baton has been handed over!

Earlier this year, our GTRF MME South colleagues collectively completed the 812 mile distance from Land’s End to John O’Groats in a day.

They raised a fantastic £7,726.

It is now the turn of the GTRF BB South & London team to take the baton, achieve our own challenge of walking, running, cycling, swimming 10k each to bring that total up to our collective goal of £10k.

We are set to conquer 10k of the South Downs, or undertake our own individual challenges in our local areas.

Why are we attempting this challenge?

We are aiming to raise £10,000 for four amazing charities – The British Red Cross Ukraine Appeal, The Alzheimer’s Society, The Hummingbird Centre and Stop Domestic Abuse, with the total raised to be fund matched by HSBC UK.

Thank you in advance for your support and making a difference to many people.

The Hummingbird Centre is run mostly by volunteers and offers a wide range of services to support guests and their families on their cancer journey. Their services include counselling, holistic treatments, hair & beauty therapy, arts & crafts and simply a place to meet others. 

About the charity

The Hummingbird Centre provides Complementary Therapy, Counselling support and Friendship for people affected by cancer in the Bicester and surrounding areas. Please donate to support our cause. Sadly there are many people affected by cancer, the growing town of Bicester in Oxfordshire has, until now, had no local place for guests and their families to meet, that is why we formed The Hummingbird Centre. We offer a friendly and welcoming centre, somewhere for people to relax, meet others in a similar situation, use the various complementary therapy treatments available or simply to have a break and a cup of tea. Counselling support and guidance is available together with arts and craft activities and much more. We provide the opportunity to escape daily life pressures, talk to people who can help and support practically and emotionally. As with many charities we are reliant on the goodwill of volunteers and supporters . Please help us raise funds for this extremely worthwhile centre, all donations are very gratefully received and wisely spent to provide the support to our guests and their loved ones, helping them cope and live well.
