Giving Back to the Community

Whittlesea U3A gives back to the community.

The sewing group, together with other members, sew exquisite, small items for the Sunshine Hospital Neonatal ward when needed. The Austin, Northern Hospital and other cancer hospital wards also benefit from rugs, hats and scarves made by our U3A members.

Whittlesea U3A prints, collates and donates Memory Books to the Northern Hospital they in turn give these very important books memory books to bereaved families when needed.

The “Singing for Joy” choir sings at nursing homes and local carols and many times the line dancing group performed for the community groups.

At the monthly morning tea food is collected and donated to the breakfast club at Mill Park Lakes School and we were active participants in the last two Whittlesea ‘Relay for Life’ events.
