As was reported in the last edition of TAMs, on 15 May, over 40 University of the Third Age members abseiled down the
Spinnaker Tower in Portsmouth. Among them was the Chairman of Portsdown U3A, Beryl Shepherd, who is a 78 year old
grandmother. Beryl undertook this incredible feat to raise money for the men's health charity,
The Movember Foundation. Sponsorship from family, friends and members of Portsdown U3A produced
an outstanding total of £1,050 for the Charity.
On 15 July, Beryl presented a “large” cheque for this amount to Jonathan Sim of the Movember Foundation.
