“It’s rewarding mentally, It’s rewarding physically and at the end of each session - I feel like I have done something brilliant today”
Christina – u3a line dancing
u3a members across the UK reveal how the u3a has changed their lives for the better in a new film out today.
From line dancing in Croydon to kayaking in Devon, members share their stories about what it’s like to be a part of the u3a experience.
In the film, Brenda from Trust u3a’s online climate change group, says, "We enjoy each other's company and we have all learned such a lot from each other. A lot of us come alive through it."
2022 is the u3a movement’s 40th anniversary. This film is just the beginning of our celebrations – throughout the year, u3a will be releasing short films of u3a members sharing their story in greater detail.
u3a enables members to learn new things, laugh with friends and live life to the full. Find a u3a near you and join the fun.
Watch 'Do Something Brilliant Today' on the u3a YouTube channel now.
Note to Editors
u3a is a national learning organisation in which those no longer in full time work or raising a family come together to develop their interests, make new friends and have fun.
There are more than 1,000 u3as spread right across the UK, with interest groups run and chosen by the members for the members. Whatever subject you can think of, a u3a will be doing it somewhere - from Walking to Talking, Geology to Genealogy, Yachting to Yoga. For a modest annual fee, you can join your local u3a giving you access to as many interest groups at that u3a as you wish.
