How to contribute to Les Voiles Blanches Bettimaski charity toy drive

Les Voiles Blanches Bettimask, the local annual toy collection, is back. This year, a pirate ship will travel port-to-port, gathering gifts to donate to the Lenval Foundation. Here’s how you can get involved.  

The Pirate Blanc – or White Pirate – of Les Voiles Blanches Bettimask will be collecting booty in ports up and down the coast in the name of charity from 25th August to 10th September. 

The “ship” will go to 20 ports in the Bouches-du-Rhône, Var, Alpes-Maritimes and Monaco to fill its chests, with the sole purpose of distributing them to hospitalised children in the region.  

Last year, more than 1,800 toys were collected through the efforts of Les Voiles Blanches Bettimask, and then distributed via the Lenval Foundation.  

To join in the fun, people are invited to drop new, unwrapped games or toys at two “safes” set up in Monaco. You can find one at the Mairie and the other at the Condamine Market.
