Dear Friends,

Firstly, thank you to everyone that participated in the ‘virtual’ family quiz night on Sunday 30th August. Although we were only a modest number of teams, it was a competitive but fun way to pass an hour !

As you will appreciate, we have had limited possibilities during this difficult period to organise fundraising events to support our charitable giving on behalf of St Luke’s. Nevertheless, the committee has still been active !  

  • The February quiz night at the hotel IBIS raised almost 400 Euros and we have already received donations following the virtual quiz night. For those of you that participated in the virtual quiz and would like to make a donation to Les Amis, you will find details of how you can do so on page 2.  Thank you in advance.
  • Earlier this year, a donation of 500 Euros was made to the Bishop’s Advent appeal raising funds for the construction of a classroom for primary school children in the Anglican Diocese of Mumias, Kenya.  
  • A donation of 500 Euros was recently made to Christian Aid in response to an appeal following the terrible explosion in Beirut. 

We are sincerely grateful to everyone that supports our events and has made direct financial contributions in support of the charitable giving of St Luke’s.  Since the formation of Les Amis in 2009, and thanks to your support, almost 85 000 Euros of donations have been made, helping those in need. Our opportunities for further fundraising activities continue to be limited for the foreseeable future, yet the need is still there. We would like especially to be able to give to the local organisations such as Resto du Coeur, Maison d’ Accueil de Jour etc.  If you would like to support us by making a direct financial contribution to Les Amis*, this can be done either by a bank transfer or cheque. Please see the details on the following page. Thank you once again for your generous support.  

Finally, a couple of dates for your diary (more information will follow).
