See message below from Ceri Hayes with contact details in bold:
I’m one of a group of people organising a day trip for refugees and asylum-seekersfrom Swansea to Hay on Wye this Sunday 13th December. We have a number of volunteers from Swansea already helping with the organisation of this event, but we need one more person with a car to volunteer to drive a few of the refugees up to Hay for the day.
I wonder if you would be kind enough to put out this request to your network? People can contact me on this e-mail address if they can help out.

This is information about the free English Language Classes offered at Swansea University via the Teacher Training programme. ELTS offers free English Language Classes to any non-native speaker of English in the local area at Pre-intermediate level or above. There does not need to be any connection to the University.
See here if you would like a free assessment before the course starts.
As part of ELTS’ on-going programme, we offer free English Language classes to all non-native speakers. The basic details for upcoming classes are below:
Tuesday 6th October to Friday 9th December 2015
Tuesday to Friday
13:00 p.m. – 15:00 p.m.
We will be running classes at two levels: pre-intermediate and upper-intermediate.
Please note the arrangements for registration for these classes – while we try to accommodate all who wish to attend, pre-registered students will have priority if numbers rise to our class limits.
Please encourage any non-native speaker of English who you feel could benefit from classes to attend, and distribute this information to any suitable person inside or outside the university. Please do encourage your contacts to come – there is no formality and they can just turn up. The classes are a good international mix of students, and they will be made very welcome.
