Thank You to all Our Course Leaders and Volunteers

2019 has been a wonderful year of learning and activity for U3ASC. This has been provided by 80+ Course Leaders who have designed, prepared and delivered the activities and educative experiences. Thank you.

And to the 50+ people behind the scenes who are keeping the whole show going - a massive ‘Thank You’ too! They are miscellaneous people who have come and moved furniture when the carpet is cleaned; as well as our hard-working Programs’ Team; Team Social; Team Office, Brains’ Trust; Grants’ Group; Technology Team; Publicity Team and Management Team.

We have a very high level of volunteerism in U3ASC, running at about 20% of total membership. If you have a couple hours to spare in a month, can you help, too, please?
