Fundraising in France

On Saturday we had a bring your own barbecue and have a swim in our heated pool, from midi to 7pm. Donations please to Cancer Support France.

We were lucky with the weather and we made 315 euros,mostly from our personal friends and neighbours.

I cannot believe the generosity of our French neighbours towards a charity for the benefit of English speaking people.

It may be the fact that they I know I have had cancer and misdiagnosed with secondaries in my lungs and that my OH has just had a scare with what turned out to be a very rare, but benign tumour, that has prompterd to be so generous.

Thank you all who came and gave so generously.
