Hummingbird Events

March 2, 2015

Take Time for Tea has come early at Willow thanks to Hummingbird events: 

We are Hummingbird Events, a brand new, student-led, event company created by Evelina, Mollie, Jessica, Amber and Katie. As second-year event management students at University of Hertfordshire, we are going to plan a fundraising event and, after a unanimous vote, we chose to support Willow. Here are just a few reasons why: 

Evelina: “Willow work hard to create joy and positive memories with their unique Special Days.” 

Amber: “I have had special people in my life fall seriously ill and have wanted to be there and make every day special for them.” 

Jess: “Willow is an amazing charity and we can’t wait to raise as much money as possible to help as many people as we can.” 

Katie: “Willow make a huge difference to thousands of people’s lives… creating treasured memories when they’re needed most.” 

Mollie: “For those living with serious illnesses I believe having something to look forward to is so important.” 

So, what are we going to do? We are hosting an afternoon tea party at Cromwell House, Stevenage, on Sunday 29th March – and you’re all invited. This will be the first event that we have put on by ourselves, from start to finish. There are a few (more like a lot!) nerves involved but we are confident it’s going to be a great success. 

We’re planning to have live music, raffle prizes, face painting and of lots of yummy things to eat, of course. For all the latest about our event find us on Facebook and gets your tickets, too. We hope to see you there. 

If you can’t make it along why not host your own Take Time for Tea party instead? If you need any tips, just ask, we’ll be experts by March!
