The Nice-Cannes Marathon is just six or seven weeks away, and if you’re running, there’s a great training group you can join headed by Sarah and Veronique (aka Bouff & Mo) from FunFit4Life. Along with the physical training, they will also provide support, motivation and the encouragement to help you progress over the next few weeks, particularly if this is your first marathon. It’s all part of the Mimosa Matters group, who run and raise funds for cancer charities right here on the Cote d’Azur, and they always make running marathons look like fun! Find out more about Mimosa Matters and get times and places for the marathon training on their website; www.MimosaMatters.org
I’m going to take a guess and say that there is an undiscovered singing talent in your house, who needs to get out of the shower, and onto a stage! One of the best places for this person, is the Riviera International Singers who meet every Thursday evening to rehearse and socialize at Mougins School. Their repertory includes a wide variety of musical styles from classical to jazz and popular to gospel. Best of all, each year they perform two concerts, at Christmas and early Summer, and the proceeds go to charity. So get that singer in your house to contact the Riviera International Singers by sending an email to; email@example.com or phone 06 17 81 15 08
