The U3A Jávea has a long history of charitable giving.

Each year we select a charity that will, throughout the year, be the focus of our fund raising, which is achieved by raffles, additional cost to ticket prices and sponsored activities.

We also have crockery and cutlery for hire the cost of which is very reasonable and goes to the charity. Finally we have a book and DVD swap stall at our monthly meetings which also raises money for the charity.

For 2021 we have chosen to continue to support ‘Make a Smile’ having done so throughout 2020 but to a lesser degree than we would have hoped due to Covid restrictions on our activities.

Their aim is to help support children in a home in Benissa. They work together with the staff of the home and local Social Services to provide for the needs of children in their care.

Due to the pandemic we have of course not been able to raise as much as we would have liked and I am sure they need our help more than ever so please be generous.
