FONDUeTHON

FT_UK_eng_cmyk .jpg

Just before the season is running out, the Theodora Children's Foundation invites you to participate to a FondueThon! 

The goal is to raise donations for this wonderful charity who helps ill children in Switzerland and the UK. 

Some of our supporters and affiliates provide fondue supply and prizes like toothbrushes by Curaden, or Alpine Wine by Joelle

The idea is simple: In the next couple of weeks, organise a fondue at your house or anywhere, contact Ursule D Thurnherr (u.thurnherr@mac.com) and she will provide some Fondue mix cheese kindly offered by Emmi as long as there is supply.

Post your event on social media, raise as much funds for the Theodora Children's Charity as a team and have a great time!

 

The Theodora Children’s Charity improves children’s experience of hospital through Giggle Doctors, who are professionally trained performers. By combining music, play and storytelling, Giggle Doctors improve wellbeing and bring magical moments to children facing huge challenges with their health. Giggle Doctors have been visiting children in hospitals, hospices and specialist care centres across England since 1994. Last year, they visited over 33,000 sick and disabled children.

96th Congress of the Swiss Abroad in Visp - August 2018

The theme of the Congress was: "Switzerland without Europe – Europe without Switzerland" a topical theme for us Swiss living in the UK! Brexit, mobility of people and goods, the campaign for an independent and neutral Switzerland were only a few among many political hot topics discussed during the Congress. Knowledgeable guest speakers were invited to discuss these points which created very interactive debates.

Brexit remains an important topic for the New Helvetic Society and soon we will be providing details of our next Brexit Forum, which will take place at the Embassy in London. The recurring relevant matters to the Swiss Abroad of banking and e-voting were equally discussed at the Congress. For the latter issue, a worldwide online petition has been launched by the Organisation of the Swiss Abroad (OSA). We encourage all our members to sign the petition here (available in German, French, Italian and English)

If you are interested in watching all of the Congress, or part of it, the complete recording is available on the YouTube Channel of ASO 

A TALK WITH THE AMBASSADOR: Brexit, what does it mean for the British and Swiss destiny in Europe?

On the 24th of January the Swiss Embassy in the UK hosted a public talk delivered by H.E. the Ambassador Alexandre Fasel on the theme ‘Brexit: what does it mean for the British and Swiss destiny in Europe?’ (Watch the video). The event was organised by the New Helvetic Society in cooperation with FOSSUK (Federation of Swiss Societies in the UK) and captured the interest of a wide audience of Swiss citizens as well as those from other nations with its aim to clarify what the Swiss Government and the Embassy in particular are doing for their fellow citizens during Brexit talks and to answer to people’s questions.
