Our small but very special charity was created in 1823 in response to the dreadful poverty suffered by British migrant workers and their families in Paris.

Almost two centuries later we continue to assist British citizens who have made their homes in France and find themselves, for whatever reason, in desperate need of financial support.

You are invited ...

The British Charitable Fund,Paris, under the patronage of Lord Llewellyn, The British Ambassador in France, is pleased to invite you to a Musical Evening of Lighthearted fun in preparation for Christmas!

The music will be provided by the senior school jazz band and soloists of the “British School of Paris”, under the direction of Simon Lockwood.

All proceeds are in aid of the British Charitable Fund in its commitment to help vulnerable British families living in France who, particularly at this time of year, struggle to keep warm and properly fed.
