2016 Banques Alimentaires – Chambourcy

2016 Banques Alimentaires saw LCYH collaborating their efforts with LC Poissy Doyen, LC Maule, and LC Poissy Blanche de Castille.

There was much activity with the community very generous in their shopping gifts. One particularly generous citizen gave a whole shopping trolley full of goods for us to sort and pack.

“Amid the rows of eccentric colours, three Heraldic Lions prowled under an unrelenting sun, gathering arm-loads of long, elegant tulips, yet the job was not yet done. Deci-bloom bunching sorted, bound, clipped and each slipped into its celluloid funnel for its final journey to market. Multi-colours, converted into cash that will in turn fund research into the fight against cancer in children. A modest gesture on our part leading to a collective avalanche that can change lives.”


We assisted LC le Pecq in gathering tulips for sale in the project to support “Des tulipes contre le cancer”




Plouf 2014 Draws to a fantastic conclusion for Autisme en Yvelines

In a simple ceremony, a cheque for the balance of the 14.000€ raised by LCYH as a result of Plouf’14, was handed over by Daniel Blondel , on behalf of the Club, to Marie-Thérèse Coutrot, Directress of the IME at Carrière s/s Poissy this afternoon.


A short meeting ensued when Ay confirmed their desire and excitement to be the majority partner in Plouf’15 but purely a figurehead in the drive for charity funds for autism during Défi78. A schedule of fund-raising visits to companies in Les Yvelines will be arranged in which Sophie Castro, the English-speaking Chef de Service of Ay, will participate.
