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. Itís 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. Itís also great fun. If youíre 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.org or call local organiser Sue Binns on 01845 52484601845 524846.
