Garden Party for LSR

LSR is lucky to have many wonderful supporters. On Sunday, June 4, 2017, a fun and entertaining Garden Fête was held in Caunes Minervois as a fundraising event to benefit the work of LSR. Many thanks go to Gill Pound of  La Petite Pépinière and her many dedicated volunteers for organizing this event.

A fun day was had by all in Gill’s lovely garden set up with many different games and activities, including a “Splat the Rat” game, a dog show, an art auction and a “smash the crockery” game, this last one great for those trying to get rid of anger and frustrations.


And let’s not forget the food and wine on offer! It was a fantastic creative event that was much helped by the rain having mercy and staying away. Thank you Gill and your happy band of volunteers for all the work you have done to make this such a successful event!

The money raised will go to help refugees in Hérault and beyond. We (LSR) are presently helping 13 families in various ways.

We help all with food and several with housing and more intense family support. Our volunteers are dedicated to do as much as we can to make the difficult lives of these people a little less stressful.

    Not just me, Alison Mugford did lots of the organisation too and Linda Wearn from La Table d’Emilie restaurant gave generously of her time and resources, not to mention everyone who had stalls, gave art for the auction, gave raffle prizes etc etc. Thanks to many, many people! Gill

      Thank you, Gill! Should have checked with you so I could be more accurate! I know lots of people were involved and worked hard, and it was so well-done, fun, and successful!
