New U3A Support Group

Helpinghands3

John Hopwood, our President, introduced this Group at a General meeting, saying that with over 1800 members it should be possible for us to provide support and practical help for those members who need it, whether as a result of illness, an accident or other circumstances.

The support could be provided in a number of ways; taking members to Hospital, helping with shopping, gardening, looking after pets, or even something as simple as having a chat or taking a cake around to their house. The possibilities are endless.

We are looking for volunteers for this group, people who are willing to give up a little bit of their time to help others. We are also looking for someone who will lead this group, who will liaise between members who need help and those who can give it. If you feel you can offer some help to members who need it please contact Prue Jackson, Groups Coordinator.
