British Religious Task Group Looking for Volunteers to Visit and Help the Poor in Peru

leave a comment »

I just came across this article from Worcester News, a British local news site. The article calls for volunteers to join the Diocese of Worcester’s Task Force in 2010. The article states people could be tasked for 2-3 weeks with “building a new classroom, helping with the administration of a medical campaign, or with working in a centre for children and people who have disabilities.”

Even though travel and accommodation expenses are paid by the volunteer, this might be a good cause to pursue if you enjoy social work, or perhaps if you are a Peruvian living in the U.K. and are interested in giving back and helping the poor in your native country. It could actually be a good excuse to align your volunteer work with a great trip to Peru.

bluntIf you are planning to visit Lima early February and are a fan of British songwriter and singer James Blunt, you might want to make sure you book your calendar on the evening of February 1!

As part of his South American tour, Blunt will be performing in Lima, Peru at the Jockey Plaza Center in the outdoors stage, as RPP reports. As a reference, the Center is approx. 45-minute drive away from the Miraflores/San Isidro area where typical tourist hotels are located.

Blunt has more than 16 million copies sold around the world, and his hits song include “You’re Beautiful”, “Back To Bedlam”, “Goodbye My Lover”, “High” and “Wisemen”, among others.

Tickets will be sold starting this Friday, December 19 via the TuEntrada website.
