Hummingbird Cancer Support Group also known as Hummingbird CSG is a friendly group based in Bishops Stortford.


We are a registered charity based in Bishop’s Stortford, Herts providing support to individuals diagnosed with cancer and their family and carers.  We offer physical support through complementary therapies as well as social, psychological and emotional support. Our group focuses on people’s holistic well-being and enables connections and social interaction with others on similar journeys or treatments.


The group runs weekly informal sessions where holistic therapies are offered on an appointment basis along with important social interaction with others on similar journeys or treatments. The benefits of this local support structure means that people no longer have to face treatment alone and can choose to chat with others over coffee. This could be an opportunity to make new friends or book relaxing complementary treatments.
