REMINDER Pig Roast and Fun in aid of Médicines Sans Frontièrs: Carcans, Saturday 17th August


As in previous years the Rankins are hosting a pig roast, at their home, with sports and fund raising activities for all the family.

This event is the BBC’s primary fund raising event. There will be a book stall and “a hat” passed around during the afternoon.

All money raised will go to Médicines Sans Frontièrs.

Please bring your friends, family, children, grandchildren and well controlled dogs for a day of fun, games and relaxation. Also please bring some goodies for the raffle, large or small !

Agenda and Format

The format will be as in the past with the pig and its crackling, a starter, cheese and dessert.

Please bring your own picnic table and chairs, parasols, eating and drinking equipment and whatever you would like to drink.

To start the proceedings, from 12:30, there will be a courtesy apero for adults and soft drinks for children.

The swimming pool will be available for use under strict parental control of children. Don’t forget your mailot de bain and towel.

There will be sports and a couple of other fund raising activities. As we may have several dogs it is hoped to have some doggie events also !


This is very much a fundraising event for Médicines Sans Frontièrs. Tickets are very reasonably priced as follows:

  • Adults – 20€,
  • Children aged 4 to 12 years – 10€
  • Children under 4 – Free.
  • Families: Two adults and two children – 50€

The price will cover the cost of the food with any surplus monies going to Médicines Sans Frontièrs.


Bookings close on Tuesday 6th August so that the appropriate sized pig can be ordered !
