» Staying in Pontypridd for Christmas 2010?

ACT QUICKLY! The application deadline for students is Friday 12th November!

Are you a student staying in Pontypridd for Christmas in 2010? Would you like to receive an invitation to spend some time with a local family celebrating Christmas? Each year, the Chaplaincy links families offering hospitality with local students for part of 25th, 26th or 27th December.

 If you would like to receive an invitation, please pick up an application form by visiting the Chaplaincy, the Students’ Union or the International Support Office. But hurry! Your application must be in by Friday 12th November!

At this stage, the Chaplaincy cannot gaurantee that you will receive an invitation – but in past years we have always been able to match every student seeking hospitality, with a willing family.
