Walks for Life 2020

CSF-L completes another successful Walk for Life, in spite of and perhaps because of the flexible and fun new format for our ever-popular annual fundraising event, Walk for Life. More details and photos coming soon!

Drop-In Days

In line with current regulation that any large gatherings remain discouraged until further notice.

However, CSF-Languedoc remains functioning as normally as confinement will allow, so do phone the Helpline on 04 67 44 87 06 if you feel you would like some extra support during these long weeks.

Let us hope that we can start afresh in September with a new season of Drop-In Days. We shall of course update this page nearer the time.

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

HANNAH’S LAST CLOTHES SALE UNTIL SPRING 2021, observing strict Covid-19 rules, will be held on Monday 16th and Tuesday 17th November from 10:00 until 16:00.

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 8 “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.

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 featured in SecondLife magazine

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.

We are proud to be affiliated to Cancer Support France, a national French organisation supporting English speaking people living in France, whatever their country of origin.
