Additions to the Volunteering family

Welcome to the Team

The La Giraudière family has welcomed 3 new volunteers! Firstly, we welcomed Shao Ping all the way from Australia. She will be staying with us until the end of the project in October. She is loving it here, despite the jet lag! She will be working in our office,responding to emails and making sure that all the volunteers hoping to stay at La Giraudière are taken care of. She hopes to improve her French as well as spending lots of time shopping at the local markets!

Next, we welcomed Monseuir Antoine from France. At 17 years old, he is the youngest volunteer curently staying here. During his stay, he will be doing our gardening as well as some manual labour on our old house. Alongside his physical work, he is hoping to take advantage of some of our English speaking volunteers and try to speak as much English as possible. He is with us for 2 weeks before returning to school.

Finally, we welcomed Eilidh (pronounced like Hayley without the H) from Scotland. She is spending 3 weeks here to improve her French before returning to her univiersity studies. During her time here, she will be taking over our social media pages and blog posts. Make sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for pictures, news and exciting information about what we have been up to!

Again, welcome to all of our volunteers, and we hope you enjoy your time in France with us!
