3 Valleys Charity Day 2014

This year SnowBugs will be helping as much as possible with 3 Valleys Charity Day. We’ll offer a donation to the overall collection of €200 plus we’ll be hosting the SnowBugs Kids Zone (open between 12.30pm and 3.30pm) on the day which is held in Meribel Village on 9th April. All of the proceeds made on the day go straight to two specially chosen charities and everyone involved has volunteered their time, services and donations to make the total raised for 2014 the best yet.

Myself and Heidi will be looking after things in the SnowBugs Kids Zone and we’ll have lots of exciting activities for all the children to do (and Mums and Dads!). Come and see us for face painting, bouncy castle fun, hula hooping, arts and crafts and more! We will also be a safe place for children to come to if they get separated from their parents or carers on the day. Just come and visit us (look out for the big Kids Zone banner!) to show the little ones what they need to look for if they do find themselves on their own and we'll look after them at this meeting point and make sure everyone is reunited. 

La Tania Charity day itself started in the year 2002 after seasonnaire, Dan Provost, lost his mother, Pat, to cancer. He decided with the backing of the community to set up a fitting day to remember his mother and raise money for cancer. A committee was set up and voted that the money raised should go to the two chosen charities and have done ever since! Every year has just got bigger and bigger and 2 years ago was moved to Meribel Village and renamed 3 Valleys Charity Day due to the huge success of previous years. 2013 was the best so far with over €20,000 raised overall. Well done everyone!

I am pleased to be so involved in raising money for the charities ‘Sebastians Action Trust’ and 'Ligue NationalContre Le Cancer'It’s no wonder why…

  •      The Sebastian’s Action Trust was set up after The Gates family who visited La Tania often lost their 11-year-old son to cancer. They have since raised over €1,000,000 with charity dances, walks, meals and the generosity of the public.  The money raised is to go towards homes for children that are seriously ill with cancer, where they can spend quality time with their family. €55,000 that La Tania raised as a community went to building the Sebastian’s Action Trust house which was finished in 2011. La Tania were invited to the opening and an inscribed glass brick has been placed in the building thanking La Tania for its contribution.

  •       The LNCC has been working hard since 1918 to research and prevent cancer, ultimately searching for a cure. They also offer support to people suffering from the disease or who have been affected by it even standing as a spokesperson for patients and families to promote their rights.
