In the light of the recent racist attacks following the referendum, I wanted to let you know that there are many people doing their best to offer the hand of friendship to international people.
I am a volunteer host for the charity HOST UK and I occasionally invite adult international students at UK universities to spend a day or weekend with me in my home.
It’s a wonderful way for me to learn about different cultures, but also for the students to experience a friendly welcome and to receive a positive taste of British culture.
The work of HOST has always been very important, but is even more so following these very sad events.
I would urge anyone interested in doing their part to show solidarity and friendship to international people to get in touch with HOST UK at www.hostuk.org, or by calling 020 7739 6292. We can all do our part to make this country, and the world, a little friendlier.
