Walks for Life 2020

Drop-In Days

Since the suspension of Drop-In Days these last months, the Support team at CSF-L have continued to offer what we can in terms of remote support. During November, all of our visitors to Drop-In have received individual phone-calls, giving the opportunity for a catch-up chat, repeated as often as each person would like.

Whilst it is currently forbidden to offer hands-on Therapies, there is now the option to request a half-hour session of Remote Reiki in the safety of your own home. Reiki is a form of healing without actually touching the body, thus making a version of it possible even when client and therapist are in different places. If anyone would like to make use of this opportunity offered by Sue Cartwright, whom many of you will know from Drop-In days, please email Alison Kane on alison.csflanguedoc@gmail.com.

You can find information about our Drop-In Day by clicking on the panel to the right:


Hannah’s Clothes Sale

Hannah’s Clothes Sale has now been cancelled for 7th and 8th December for reasons beyond her control.  

She hopes to hold the sale later in December, if restrictions are lifted. We will post the new dates here at that point.

Click on the panel for more information about Hannah’s sales, including location and a map.


Ann’s monthly Book Sale is going online

Ann has decided to suspend her physical book sales for the time being in order to avoid any risk of spreading Covid-19.   But, knowing how much the books and DVDs are appreciated and conscious too that fund-raising for CSF-L is difficult during the pandemic, she is moving her sales online. Will you give it a go too? There may be hiccoughs but please bear with her.

Ann says:
For both books & DVDs, click here. There are 9 “libraries”. Books are arranged by category: fiction, non-fiction, sci-fi/fantasy, thrillers/detectives, and young adult books. DVDs are arranged by audience: PG & suitable for all, over-12s and general and over-18s.
 
If you copy and paste the title/s of the book/s (don’t worry about including the author) and/or DVDs you would like into an email and then send it to books.csflanguedoc@gmail.com, I will arrange to deliver or post them to you. 
 
First come, first served! 
You can make either make a donation on delivery (I’ll bring along a box or you can put the money in an envelope) or you can make a donation online here.
 
I will add (and remove) books and DVDs over the coming months so why not save this website so that you can find it again easily?
 
If you want me to watch out for your favourite authors/directors or have ANY questions, please email me (books.csflanguedoc@gmail.com) and I’ll do my utmost to help. 
 
Thank you! Looking forward to seeing you in person again soon. 
 
Ann

CSF article in Prospero

One of our members, George Pixley had a bright idea about how to spread the word among the ex-pat community in France about the work we do. This article about CSF appeared recently in Prospero, the publication sent to ex-BBC employees currently living in France. If anyone else has any suggestions about where we could publicise our organisation, please contact Jenny at: jenny.csflanguedoc@gmail.com.


Cancer Support France article in The Telegraph

Expat cancer patients in France can rely on English-speaking support. The burden of a devastating diagnosis can be made worse by living far from home and not being fluent in French. But help is at
hand …

CSF-Languedoc was recently featured in an article in SecondLife magazine edited by Étincelle, an association supporting women affected by cancer and their close ones, in Montpellier and the Occitanie region. You can read the article here.
