2022 CRACKER FAIR

TOMBOLA PRIZES FOR CANCER SUPPORT FRANCE – LANGUEDOC’S STALL AT THE 2022 CRACKER FAIR AT THE ABBAYE DE VALMAGNE

The Cracker Fair, on the 26th and 27th November, at the beautiful Abbaye de Valmagne between Montagnac and Villeveyrac, is one of the most anticipated festive events in the region, attracting thousands of people from far and wide. The Fair is a great opportunity to spread the word about the support that CSF-Languedoc offers.

The CSF-Languedoc Christmas Tombola is always a huge draw to our stall. As well as introducing us to new people, it’s an important fund-raiser. The more prizes we have the better the Tombola will be, so please dig deep and ask among your friends, local shops, restaurants, wine domaines, yoga and beauty therapists*. 

We’re looking for items including, but not limited to: restaurant/hotel/beauty vouchers, artwork, wine & spirits, unwanted gifts (in original packaging), candles, ceramics, Christmas preserves and other non-perishable food items, etc. Collection will start soon, so please contact Paula at Paudoo@yahoo.co.uk or by telephone 0766 1138 90, if you have a prize to donate.

* We will acknowledge all businesses donating Tombola prizes both at the event and on our website.

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 us at: feedback.csflanguedoc@gmail.com.
