£1.21m - The charity's income for the year ending March 2010, compared with £998,000 in the previous year. This was made up mostly of £624,000 in voluntary income and £535,000 from charitable activities

£302k - Free reserves at year-end, equal to roughly three months' expenditure, and down from £353,000 in the previous year. The charity has said that this is adequate in the short term, but it wants to "substantially" increase this level of reserves in the future

£60k - No employee was paid more than this

760 - The number of U3As in the UK, with 232,000 members - an increase of 11 per cent on the previous year

175k - The number of copies of U3A News, the charity's magazine, sent out to members. The magazine makes an annual loss of £20,000.
