Kentish U3A Power Point Presentation 




2017   Grant from Social Services

We were successful in our bid for a grant from Department of Social Services.  The grant was announced at the beginning of May and the money was allocated to purchase gardening tools for the Living Murals group conducted by Leoni Read.


 2016   Grant from KENTISH COUNCIL

We were successful in our application for a Grant from the Kentish Council. 

We applied for funding to assist in the establishment of portable classrooms so that U3A classes can be conducted across all of Kentish as required.   Our request for $1770 was successful and we would like to thank the Council for their generous support of Kentish U3A.

The grant money has been received and an order is being placed for the Data projector and other items which will help to make our classes portable when necessary.
