Sapeurs-Pompiers Boussac and Clugnat
In 2018 AIPB wanted to say a big THANK YOU to the Sapeur-Pompiers in Boussac and Clugnat, for the hard work they do keeping our town safe, not only in case of fire but also in case of medical emergencies. Three of our members have had to call upon them for a medical emergency in recent years, two of them potentially life threatening situations, because of this it made us realise just how fortunate we are to have such a great service in our town.
We were able to donate €348.90 to Boussac and €403.20 to Clugnat Sapeurs-Pompiers for sports and entrainment equipment for their rest room. Read the article…
