Next General Assembly - Thursday 3rd September 2020 - Centre Polivalent, Murla - More Information

Dear Members,
Due to uncertain times regarding the Coronavirus, the decision has been made to postpone all TCET events and trips until the situation is resolved .

Membership Renewals

Assuming the September General Assembly can go ahead, we plan to hold a renewals session from 10.00am until 11.00am. We also plan to hold a Satellite Renewals Session in September to replace the one that we were unable to hold in March. Watch out for a date and venue.

In the meantime, and for those who do not feel that they want to socialise at this time, members can renew by bank transfer.

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.

Due to the affect of Covid-19, details of suggested charities has had to be revised. Details will be published on this website and in future newsletters, in order to give members, especially those new to the area, some idea of the work done by different organisation. If practical, details will also be on display at any further monthly General Assemblies in Murla. Voting for the charities will be organised later in the year.

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