CANCELLATION OF the Phoenix Book Fair

As a result of the measures recently introduced by the French Government to restrict the spread of Coronavirus, this year’s Spring Book Fair, scheduled for Saturday 2nd May, will NOT be taking place. It is with great sadness that we have had to make this decision as we know how popular the event is, not only from the point of buying books, CDs, plants etc but also as an opportunity to meet and spend time with friends. The Book Fairs are also extremely important to us in terms of fund raising, as each one now generates approximately 17,000€. The cancellation of the Fair will therefore place us in a very difficult financial situation and we will need to identify other fund-raising activities so as not to reduce the number of dogs and cats that we will be able to help. Please make a note in your diaries that the Autumn Book Fair will take place on Saturday 3rd October, where we will be happy to welcome you all with open arms. In the meantime, if any of you wish to make a donation to Phoenix, you can do so online at Don’t forget you can get tax relief in France on any donation you make. We will be more than happy to receive donations of books, CDs and DVDs at our next Fair. If you wish to donate any items before the beginning of October, please contact us at
