A day at the zoo with the "Secours Populaire"

September 2008

At the end of August 2008 - as for every year since 1979 - the French Secours Populaire (a charity aiding the needy) organised for those not able to go on holiday, the "A Day-Out for the forgotten ones". It is within this context that on 23rd August last, the Normandy branch of the organisation invited around one hundred families, i.e. nearly 400 people to take advantage of a day out at the zoo in La Flèche.

Both young and old were able to discover the zoo, in the Sarthe Department, that on a 14 site counts nearly 1200 animals belonging to 150 species; they were able to watch captivating demonstrations carried out by unusual actors such as Eagles and Seals!

In associating ourselves to this initiative, by giving free access to the coaches transporting the participants to the motorway, ALIS shows again its commitment to the local community and its wish to participate in the everyday life of the region.
