VOLUNTEERS - WE COULDN'T SURVIVE WITHOUT THEM!
We are a self-supporting organisation with no financial help from the council or education. The administration and all the running of C3A is done by volunteers, and as we have a sizeable membership, this is no easy task, and it is thanks to these volunteers that we are able to exist. The computer classes are also run by volunteers as are some of the leisure activities, which helps to keep our running costs as low as possible.
