Great FiFi Bake-Off
Held annually...third year in 2019...around January to cheer those winter blues! Sweet and Savoury sections: bake and bring... no bunfights over the prizes, ladies!
Held annually in May in Septfonds, FiFi's official address.
Followed by lunch in a local restaurant for an informal get-together.
Held annually in April in Septfonds, this is our fundraiser and is an amazing event...THE 'go to' to replenish your wardrobe!! Members kindly donate clothes & accessories and their time, and willing volunteers sort/iron/hang/price items and give guidance to shoppers on the day...
All proceeds are donated to a charitable organisation chosen by our members. In 2018, over 1,600 € was given to "La Maison des Femmes", a women's refuge in Albi. This year, 1909,78 € was raised and will be donated to "Restos du Coeur", chosen by members as this year's charity.
Apéros at the chateau
Held annually in late spring in member Lizzie's chateau in Auty, (merci!) This a glorious afternoon where members and their guests nibble and natter and quaff bubbly....get out that pretty dress!
Group Leaders' BBQ
Held annually in late summer to say 'thank you' to all the Group Leaders for their input and efforts.
Food home cooked by Committee members.
For the last three years members have bought and wrapped gifts and popped them in a prettily wrapped shoebox to gladden the hearts of the ladies in "La Maison des Femmes", the women's refuge in Albi.
We delivered around 40 boxes, each containing 5 to 6 gifts, and it was a joy to see the smiles on the ladies' faces!
A special lunch in a lovely restaurant with a festive menu suitable for all. In the past we have had Christmas crackers but have now decided to abandon a not altogether ecological ritual, and this year we're planning a "Secret Santa" with each member donating a more environmentally-friendly "cadeau", such as homemade truffles, a jar of jam (or even honey for those with bees!), a charity shop purchase or preloved gift. Then everyone will have a pretty prezzie on their plate at lunch!!
