SCLT Public Presentation Team Visit Neath University of the Third Age (U3A)
Thursday 16th March 2017 has seen SCLT volunteer presenter Jon Williams being hosted by the members of Neath University of the Third Age (U3A) at their monthly group gathering at Neath Community Centre. Jon regaled the massed audience with the very latest addition to the Public Presentation Team portfolio - the 'Dracula - The Man Behind the Myth' presentation.
The University of the Third Age (U3A) movement is a unique and exciting organisation which provides, through its U3As, life-enhancing and life-changing opportunities. Retired and semi-retired people come together and learn together, not for qualifications but for its own reward: the sheer joy of discovery!
Members share their skills and life experiences: the learners teach and the teachers learn, and there is no distinction between them. The U3A movement is supported by its national organisation, the Third Age Trust.
The senior safety presentation focused on some interesting facts around the extent and consequences of the ageing population of the United Kingdom, before leading the audience through the evolution of the SCLT Charity and discussing some of the more common scams which are targeted at the senior community and some useful tips on staying safe into later life.
At the conclusion of his visit, Jon commented, “Neath U3A have been a very engaging audience and the extent and breadth of the questions which were asked at the end of the presentation leads me to believe that the audience really enjoyed the presentation about the real-live exploits of the man that Bram Stoker based the character of Drucula upon. There were many gasps and sharp intakes of breath, so I think I achieved my goal of entertaining the group, whlist at the same time, passing some interesting historical facts along”
Every member of the audience received a personal copy of the award-winning Senior Siren magazine – the quarterly publication of the Senior Citizen Liaison Team, which offers crime prevention advice and a host of other lifestyle information for seniors and those who support elder family members.
