Moonlight Minions assemble!

Sobell House

Assistant Manager, Louise Bridge, along with a group of customers and friends here at Bicester Innovation will be taking part in the Oxford Moonlight Stroll on 11th July 2015 in support of Sobell House Hospice Charity.   

Customer and fellow Minion, Amanda AKA 'Bob', tells her story:

"Many of my friends and family in some way been affected by cancer, so as a family we try to get involved, challenge ourselves and raise money for charity.  On hearing about the Moonlight Stroll I instantly signed up, how exciting walking around beautiful Oxford late at night!! I’m in!

I have visited Sobell House many times with friends and family and memorably my Grandad was cared for there.  It is truly wonderful the difference being at Sobell House makes to so many people’s lives in difficult circumstances.  The staff and volunteers are genuinely inspiring; they are real life super heroes.

I embarked upon recruiting some fellow strollers. My lovely but ever so slightly bonkers friends Louise & Becci jumped at the challenge. Louise then recruited a devine group of ladies and convinced us all that Minions were indeed Superheroes.  I verified this fact with my 7 & 6 year old sons who confirmed that Minions were indeed Superheroes that was all the confirmation I needed!!

Trainers, goggles & Bananas at the ready, to have some fun and raise as much money as possible. Look out for us; we will be the bright yellow bunch in the matching fleeces & cheeky smiles on our faces.  I am so looking forward to walking through the streets of Oxford, my hometown, birth place of my Grandparents.  It will be a time for reflection, time for smiles and a time for giving something back to a fantastic provision."

Louise describes the event as "11 gorgeous gals dressed up as minions (yes minions!) and walking the streets of Oxford after dark in aid of Sobell House Hospice. We intend to have lots of fun on the Moonlight Stroll and make the most of an extra ordinary night. A special Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. Not long to go now!"
