Our U3A is covered by the Charities Act as such payments cannot be made to another charity. (Funds have to be used for our Charitable purpose), however, we are allowed to make a one off payment to another charity at the request of a speaker in lieu of their fees.

The Committee and members have decided that donations paid for refreshments at our monthly meetings can be donated to a charity and to comply with the Charity Act rules the monthly collections are paid straight over to the charity and do not pass through our bank account.

A summary of the donations made in the current financial year is shown in the link box identified as Payments To Charities.
