Goodwill Team

Goodwill Team

U3A Vall del Pop Charity Fundraising Team ( The Goodwill Team) operates to organise events in order to raise funds for Charities nominated by U3A members.
Our Constitution does not allow Membership Funds to be used for charitable purposes and with this in mind, all fund raising events are voluntary , leaving U3a members to decide if they wish to participate or not.

When re-joining, or for new members, upon joining, a voluntary donation of 1Euro is suggested, and a nomination for the charity of their choice made at the same time. The charities will receive funds at the end of the year.

The Team’s members, Sandra Welham, Elaine Horton, Carol Lockhart, Lyndi Warrilow, Marie Fitzgerald meet regularly to organise fund raising events. Care is taken not to impact on other Charitable fund raising events organised in the Xalon and Orba Valleys.

For 2019 the aim is to hold 5 or 6 events throughout the year, each event intended to be enjoyable and for members to have fun whilst raising monies at the same time.

Events planned for 2019

  • Valentine Day Cake Sale
  • Easter Bonnet Competition and Raffle
