What’s New is New!

There’s a new page on this website called “What’s New“. It’s purpose is to be a source for the latest information of interest to CSF-Languedoc members and friends. The main menu now has a link to the What’s New page.

Walks for Life 2020

Not to be thwarted by these uncertain times, a dauntless team at CSF-L has devised a flexible and fun new format for our ever-popular annual fundraising event, Walk for Life.

New Name, New Format

Newly named WALKS for Life, the 2020 event proposes that smaller groups of friends and families organise individual walks or cycle rides of their choice – which can be known and loved, or new and unexplored – of any length and on any day between 1st and 27th September. This new format allows for anyone to take part, wherever they are.

More details may be found at the Walk for Life page on this website.

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:

Ann’s monthly Book Sale is, regrettably, cancelled during the Confinement

The book sales are normally held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, at le Tourb’Art Café in the heart of Tourbes.  except during June, July and August. Ann hopes to hold her next book sale in September.

While Ann will be delighted to receive donations of books, please do not bring them to the café…there is limited space. Instead, to donate books, please contact Ann at books.csflanguedoc@gmail.com.

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.
