Room for a Zulu?

We desperately require host families for ONE night only for young Zulu singers giving a Zulu Benefit Concert on 10 June. The aim of the tour is to raise funds for this charity, which cares for orphans and abused children. We like to put two choir members with each host family, if possible, so that they can support each other. They are very well behaved, all speak English and have stayed with host families many times before. Guidelines will be given to the host families.

If youd If youd like to be a host, please contact Christine on 07726 161006 or 0208 699 7250 or christineklaasen@hotmail.com, or contact Sylvia on 01394 386675 or smay24@tiscali.co.uk
