Cancer Support France – Sud de France


Autumn 2014


CSF Pyrenees Orientales

Dear Everyone,

Cancer Support France Awareness Week coincides nicely with our busy September agenda.  There is a lot of information  so, rather than cram it all in, I’ve simply attached the appropriate flyers (see below)  which have all the details.

Wednesday 3 September   –  Céret  –  10.30-12
Please come to Pablo’s Bar  on the Place Picasso.  There’ll be a Book Exchange and perhaps a last chance before the weather gets (even more) unpredictable to sit outside and have a drink and a chat with friends.  

Sunday 7 September  –  Caixas  –  3pm
Frank and Penny are inviting members, supporters and all those interested in CSF to join them at their home.
Tea, sandwiches and cakes will be served from 3.30pm (as well as other drinks!)  There will be live music from Lizzie and Bente, Bring and Buy, homemade produce and English books.  
Please let Penny know if you can come (  Tel: 0468 38 81 28     (See below for more details)

Monday 15 September –  Laroque  –  10.30 -12
We’ll be at the Café des Artistes  with books and a warm welcome to anyone who would like to drop in for a chat over coffee.

Wednesday 17 September  –  Ille-sur-Têt  –  10-12
Come and join us at  Lizzie’s Kitchen.  Sue Scott, one of our members and a manager at John Lewis until she retired, will be giving a talk on ‘150 years of John Lewis’.

Cancer Support France Awareness Week        21-27 September

Thursday 25 September  –  St Cyprien  –  11.30
Hazel Turner and Geoff Hunt are cycling from Cherbourg to St Cyprien.  Their ride is in memory of the many people who have been affected by cancer and they hope to raise money for CSF France and La Ligue contre le cancer.  The details are on the flyer attached.
They hope to arrive on the 25th September at around 11.30am at La Flottille, a bar/restaurant practically on the seafront on Boulevard Maillol ( ).  The restaurant serves a vast array of food from pizzas to formules and is large enough to accommodate as many well-wishers as can come.
If you would like lunch, please tell Penny now so that she can contact you nearer the time to confirm the details. (

**Cycling from Cherbourg to the Med!!
Cycling from Cherbourg to the MedDo you like a challenge?
This is what Hazel Turner and Geoff Hunt are taking on when they cycle from Cherbourg to St Cyprien!
They will be starting their 1,400km journey on Sunday 7th September and plan (all being well!) to reach their destination on Thursday 25th September.
Their arrival will coincide with Cancer Support France Awareness Week.
Both Hazel and Geoff lost their partners to cancer and will be doing the ride in memory of Jeff (1955-2009) and Anna (1953-2012), and in support of the many people, whatever their nationality, affected by cancer in some way.
Their thoughts are particularly with Linda Shepherd, the founder of Cancer Support France, who has just been diagnosed with a recurrence of cancer after 12 years in remission.

You can follow Hazel and Geoff’s progress HERE
