Christmas Volunteering Opportunity with HOST UK

Give the gift of Christmas. Christmas is a time to be around family and friends, but hundreds of international students across the country are likely to spend the festivities alone on a closed-down University campus. HOST arranges for volunteer hosts to invite a student from Christmas Eve until 27th December, turning an otherwise lonely Christmas into one of celebration of warmth.
If you would like to invite an international student to stay for a few days at Christmas or any other time of the year, please contact HOST: 020 7739 6292 or
