I am sure on hearing of todays sad news of the death of His Royal Highness, Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, the thoughts, prayers and sympathy of Oswestry U3A members, will be with her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth and the Royal family. A long life of duty and support sadly now at an end, but someone who has been within most of our lives for a long time. Our condolences.

Gift Aid is a concession granted by HM Revenue and Customs. Registered charities may reclaim the income tax that their members have paid on their subscriptions. This income is used to support the activities of the charity. Oswestry U3A is such a charity. There is no cost to the donating Member, but Oswestry U3A must be authorised to make the claim. The authorisation is made by the donor completing the Gift Aid form and returning it to the Membership Secretary. No further action is required of the donor. The authorisation remains in force as long as the donor is a member of Oswestry U3A. Donors can withdraw from Gift Aid at any time, by notifying the Membership Secretary. Members who do not pay income tax should not complete the Gift Aid form."
