Walk for Life 2017

76

This year Cancer Support France – Languedoc will be holding its seventh annual Walk for Life on 17th September.  Please support this worthy cause by joining them at the lovely Domaine de la Clapière, Montagnac, l’Hérault.

CSF said:

This is one of the biggest fundraising events in our calendar, regularly raising thousands of euros through sponsorship and/or donations from participants.

All funds raised from Walk for Life go towards:

· expenses incurred in the training of our volunteers, who provide face-to-face, email and telephone support (both practical and emotional) to Anglophones in the area who are affected by cancer

· the provision of Drop-in Days in Beziers, where people can access complementary therapies, information and space to talk

This year we will also be giving a proportion of the funds raised to CSF National, to support volunteer training that directly benefits CSF-Languedoc.

Following the success of the previous three years’ walks, we will again be starting and ending at the Domaine de la Clapière, Montagnac. As usual, there will be two different walks: one of approximately 10km (registration at 9am) and one of approximately 5km (registration at 10am). The walks are on the Domaine’s private land and will both be led by a guide.

For safety reasons and to help with planning, we are asking walkers to pre-register for the distance they intend to walk. This year, a team from the Montagnac Radio Assistance Society will be ensuring the safety of walkers where the routes coincide with public roads.

By popular demand, we will again follow the walks with lunch. This year, as well as CC’s fish & chips, there will also be options from Chillis & Spice (both spicy and non-spicy). All lunches will be priced at EUR 12. Please note that advance lunch bookings are essential, as numbers are limited and must be given to the caterers beforehand.

Domaine de la Clapière’s wine will be available for sale at a reduced price and Les Soeurs Delicieuses will be selling their always tempting goodies. There will also be space for people who wish to bring their own picnic, and pre-loved books can be browsed and bought for a snip at Hannah’s book stall – again, with all proceeds going to CSF.

All are welcome to join the walks. Every year sees individuals, couples, families and friends (dogs on leads included) coming together to enjoy spectacular scenery, convivial company and to support CSF-Languedoc.

It is your generous support of events like this that allows us to have a team of around 20 trained Active Listeners providing support to over 30 clients at any one time.
