Ella, one of our fantastic supporters is making and selling a range of different items to raise money for Oxfordshire Mind and the Hummingbird centre!
Ella said: “Before Christmas I attended the Hummingbird Centre in Bicester, a project which supports people who have been diagnosed with cancer and people who have had a loved one diagnosed.
Here I rediscovered my love of crafting and I am so glad I did. As the centre was closed during lockdown, I continued to craft on my own making cards, coasters, bird houses, letter racks and much more.
I have found that this has especially helped my mental health and the voice in my head has significantly reduced.
I only have 8% vision in my left eye; however, I do not let this stop me and I give my crafting 110%. I do not claim the items I have made are 100% perfect but then neither is my vision. I enjoy making these things and the pleasure they give to the people who buy them.
I have decided that with the money I raise from selling these items to split the profits between the Hummingbird Centre and Oxfordshire Mind as these are the two charities that I hold very close to my heart and which have helped me out over the years I have struggled with my mental health.”
A very big thank you to Ella for her fundraising and hard work in making and selling these wonderful items, we really appreciate your support!
