Donation from Microgaming Health and Care Trust
The Isle of Man U3A has received a generous donation of £600 from the Microgaming Health and Care Trust toward the purchase of portable audio-visual equipment. A digital projector and public address system will therefore now be available for loan to special interest groups that need to show presentations from laptop computers, project videos or amplify speech or music.
