Ian McCannah, Chair - Third Age Trust which supports the more than 1,000 U3As across the country, said,

"Volunteers are integral to the U3A ethos of by the members, for the members”.

We are using the national Volunteers’ Week (1st - 7th June ) to celebrate our very own volunteers across the movement and I would like to thank you all for your support.

Of course, we have been able to showcase only a handful of volunteers among the many thousands spread across the movement in our short video above.

However, we have tried to encompass the extraordinary breadth of volunteering that takes place in all U3As - from the committee roles, through those working away behind the scenes putting out chairs and making tea, to the beating heart of the movement – its group leaders.

You all make the U3A the thriving and supportive community that it is. Thank you.

Look out for upcoming events.
