SAVE THE DATE – Saturday 7th December 2019 TWIG Annual Christmas Fair

Wednesday 25th September, save the date! TWIG invite you to come along and enjoy a lovely cup of tea/coffee and some gorgeous cake as well as lively chat and information about what TWIG has to offer from their Special Interest Groups. All we ask in return is a donation towards our third year of supporting the Macmillan Cancer Trusts World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Everyone is very welcome, not just our lovely lady TWIG members. Bring your husband, bring your partner, bring your children and your friends. The more the merrier!

TWIG raises a substantial amount of money each year via our Christmas Fair for charities; here in Toulouse, in France and around the world. The money raised is given yearly, in March, at our AGM. The idea of raising money for Macmillan in the UK came about because each year we hold a Rentree Coffee Morning for our members, in September. A suggestion was made, “Why not try and raise money and be part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning?” Here we are three years on with over €1200 raised so far for Macmillan. Cancer affects many people all over the world. We would love to see you and hope you would like to help us, to help those, who want to help people with cancer.

Thank you to everyone who came to support TWIG BOOK SALE in aid of Association Olympe de Gouges (a women´s refuge) on 19th May. We are pleased to announce we raised an amazing €475. TWIG President, Mary Budgen and fellow committee members handed over the cheque to L’ Association Olympe de Gouges after a delicious lunch at La Maison d’à côté their onsite restaurant. The association has rooms and apartments in the women ´s refuge and currently are helping about 80 women in need of a safe haven and they also provide work experience through the restaurant. The restaurant is open from Monday – Friday from 12h00 -14h00. The weekly menus can be obtained by joining them on their Facebook Page: La Maison D’à Côté Toulouse.
