"Toutes pompes dehors" event in France
PCM participated in the "Toutes pompes dehors" operation, organized by the Onco Plein Air association, by offering employees a shoe collection at the Champtocé-sur-Loire site in March 2018.
Thanks to everyone's donations, nearly 3m3 of shoes were collected at PCM. The shoes collected are then revalued by reinsertion subsidiaries and resold. The funds raised are then used to finance trips for children with cancer to the Angers University Hospital.
The Onco Plein Air Association (AOPA), created in 1997, aims to improve the quality of life of children and adolescents suffering from cancer and leukaemia and treated in the Pediatric Oncology Department of the University Hospitals of Nantes and Angers.
AOPA is aimed at children, adolescents and young adults aged 4 to 30 years old and offers them short, medium and long-term outings, mainly outdoors, which are very positive at all levels.
