Alumnus Pops in to Say Hello – Big Surprise for La Giraudière!!

Yorkshire Alumnus arrives at La Giraudière from Germany!!

Former Volunteer Pops in to Say Hello – Big Surprise for La Giraudière!!

Today, just as current volunteers at La Giraudière were sitting down to a delicious lunch, Paul got a big surprise when Jeffrey, an alumnus of La Giraudière 2016 program swung by. Jeffrey stayed at La Giraudière for two weeks over two years ago and helped out with a lot of D.I.Y and construction jobs, including adding ceilings to part of the old loft. Along with Jeffrey was his wife and two friends. Jeffrey who is originally from Yorkshire but living in Germany since the 60’s, was visiting his friends near Limoges (over 100 kilometers from La Giraudière) and he decided it would be nice to make an impromptu return visit to Brossac.


Jeffrey really entertained La Giraudière volunteers with tales of very funny incidences and mishaps while he worked in La Giraudière with five other blokes during Easter two years ago. His tales of the goings-on at La Giraudière were enough to make his wife and friends also want to come and say hello. It seems many volunteers to this gorgeous part of South West France look forward to a future visit!! Thanks for visiting Jeffrey and bringing the fabulous sunshine with you…
