Our Charity

 Les Restos du Cœur, Capbreton

Every three years, at our AGM, we choose a charity to support. In 2023 we voted
to raise funds for Les Restos du Cœur, Capbreton chapter. Our choice honoured
the memory of beloved long-time club member, Claude. Before her untimely
death in 2022, Claude was a staunch supporter of, and volunteer at, the Capbreton
Restos du Cœur, where they now have a much-needed freezer, funded by donations
in her honour, named after her.

 

Our dynamic Charity Sub-Committee organises two charity fund-raisers a year -
a fun,
much-anticipated summer bbq - the 'hot ticket' of the summer - and a
home-made products sale and raffle at our elegant annual Christmas luncheon.
Our members also volunteer at regular Restos du Cœur food-collection drives
at local supermarkets.

 

Les Restos du Cœur was founded by comedian Coluche in 1985 to help those struggling with food insecurity.
Sadly, in the intervening years, the problem has only grown, and, in our relatively affluent area, there are many
who have difficulties making ends meet.

The Capbreton Restos du Cœur food bank provides an essential year-round lifeline to families and  individuals living in the greater Capbreton-Hossegor-Bénesse-Maremne-Angresse area.  

The food bank is open every Thursday for recipients to collect food and supplies. Many are elderly and lonely and, as well as the much-appreciated supplies, they also look forward to the hot drink, snack and chat provided by the centre's dedicated volunteers.

Our club is currently the only outside organization that is supporting the Capbreton Restos du Cœur.
