HOST
There are international students at our universities hoping to have the privilege of meeting people who live in the UK. Having a well-educated younger person from another part of the world visit you for a day, a weekend, or over Christmas, is an ideal way of exchanging ideas about your respective cultures. It�s an opportunity to take a pride in our own country and to understand more about another one, while showing kindness to someone far from home. It�s also great fun. If you�re not sure about doing this on your own, why not get together with another U3A member and make a great international weekend of it? HOST is a well-established charity whose hosts are volunteers. Please see www.hostuk.orgor call local organiser Sue Binns on 01845 524846.
