Bon Coeur

We raise funds which we distribute to many local causes - human and animal. We have a shop in 47470 Beauville - open regularly with clothes, books, brocante and jewellery, and two annual Grand Bazaar sales – one in spring and one in autumn. We conduct a Franco-Britannic boules tournament on 14 July and we assist with neutering errant cats. Since inception, we have made donations of over €110,000, generally to smaller local Associations.

Phoenix Association

Phoenix is a non-profit organisation managed and run exclusively by volunteers, operating across the Dordogne and surrounding departments. The members are mainly British but also French, Dutch and some other nationalities.

We take in abused or abandoned animals for rehabilitation and re-homing. We act as intermediary between SPA shelters and people wishing to adopt from them. The Spring and Autumn Book Fairs are the stars of the yearly social events.
