Christmas can be a lonely time for international students at UK Universities – would you be able to make someone feel welcome and invite them into your home to share Christmas with your family? A great opportunity for a child to really understand the true meaning of this special festival, meet new people and engender goodwill.
To learn more about volunteer hosting at Christmas or any weekend of the year, see www.hostuk.org or contact the HOST office on 020 7739 6292.
HOST is a charity, founded 27 years ago by the British Council, which encourages international friendship and understanding by arranging for adult international students at universities in the UK to spend 1 – 3 days in a British home.
If you would like more information please do not hesitate to get in touch with me on 020 7739 6292 or look at our website www.hostuk.org
We are always grateful to welcome new hosts on board. Not only is hosting a wonderful opportunity to meet people from around the world and introduce them to our customs, but it also allows for children to be introduced to other cultures, therefore broadening their knowledge and increasing their understanding.
