The next monthly meeting of Bearsden & Milngavie University of Third Age (U3A) is going to be held at 11am on Tuesday, October 20 in St Andrew’s Church Hall, Bearsden.

Helen Dunbar will give a talk on the work of Mercy Ships, a charity which provides life-saving medical care.

A team of nurses, doctors, surgeons, and other crew members from all over the world, donate their time to help on board the world’s largest non-governmental floating hospital.

They can sail directly to some of the world’s poorest people to deliver medical care and provide safe, state-of-the-art facilities in which to treat them.

Together, they have helped transform the lives of more than 2.42 million people in the poorest countries of the world since 1978.

The U3A is an organisation for retired and semi-retired people, with many local daytime activities and meetings.
