007 Spectre Cheque Presentation

The 18th January 2016 saw the conclusion to a wonderful gala event raising funds for equitherapy provided by Avenir APEI.

A princely sum of 7500 euros was very gratefully received by Avenir APEI. In attendance at the cheque presentation were the delightful children who will benefit from equitherapy sessions at Maisons Laffitte.

During the ceremony we were treated to performances by the children on a specially made musical instrument  the <<Bao Pao >>!!

Our very own musicians from the Lions Club Yvelines Heraldic, Lions Club Maisons-Laffitte et Le Mesnil-le-Roi and The Snippet then treated the children to a rendition of Skyfall.

Horrific events in Paris of Friday 13th November, caused some uncertainty about the continuation of this gala event in terms of its legal status and the psychosocial concerns for those attending.

No-one was spared, we were all touched in some way from the events. However life must go on!!

Calendar Girls Gala Evening with LCYH

On Sunday evening the 9th of February 2014, LCYH held their first ‘Gala Evening Event’ at the Le Pecq Theatre. We collaborated with a local Anglophone theatre company, the International Players, to reserve this one special night from their annual show, the well known story of “Calendar Girls”. The Balcony area was the setting for this event on the Sunday evening, where canapés and champagne at the interval were thoroughly enjoyed by over 100 guests.

All the proceeds from this evening were donated to the charity foundation “Imagine for Margo” with a target project in mind. The room that was the focus of the project is based in the Poissy Hospital Pediatric area and is where the children have their blood analysis and samples taken… the not very fun things. Consequently, the children had named this room “the sad room”. The target that we set for our ‘Gala Evening event’ was to replace the couch bed that was the focal piece of furniture in the room and it could do with being modernised and comfortable!

We reached our target and it is with much pleasure that we can say we contributed to changing the overall outlook and perception of this room alongside the International Players and the Rotary Club of Poissy, each of us with different targets but aiming for the same goal.
