Host family - Give the gift of Christmas

May we appeal to your readers to consider giving the gift of Christmas?

We urgently need more invitations to offer to international students at university here, who would much rather experience Christmas in the homes of local people, than on a deserted campus.

We will carefully match hosts, no matter their age, or how far they live from a university, with a student they would enjoy meeting for just three nights.

For more information, go to or call 020 7739 6292.
