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 fundraising events are voluntary, leaving U3a members to decide if they wish to participate or not.

Due to the continuing effect of Covid-19, details of suggested charities have had to be further revised.
Voting for the charities is being organised for General Assemblies and by email.

The Team’s members, Sandra Welham, Elaine Horton, Carol Lockhart, Lyndi Warrilow, Marie Fitzgerald, Patricia Thompson, Janet Duffield & Jacintha Hoogewerf meet regularly to organise fundraising events. Care is taken not to impact on other Charitable fundraising events organised in the Xalo and Orba Valleys.

If you have some spare time and would like to join the Goodwill Team, you would be most welcome, as fresh ideas help us to organise events and raise money for these good causes.

Due to the affect of Covid-19, it is no longer possible for information/awareness talks to be given by representatives of Charities at Murla General Assemblies.

Events planned for 2020

  • TCET Coffee mornings - Raffles organised to raise funds
  • Keep Fit Stretch Class, Riu Rau - Thursday 15th October.  Funds donated to Goodwill Team
  • Raffle/Sale of Flower Arrangements - Wednesday 4th November, El Cid, General Assembly
  • Xmas Raffle - Wednesday 2nd December, El Cid, General Assembly
