The Wensleydale Club is a strong supporter of Foundation, particularly Polio Plus, which aims to eradicate Polio from the world. We also like to host Group Study Exchange (GSE) students from all over the world, as well as finding suitable candidates who will benefit from being part of a GSE team visiting other countries. We supported one going to California, and another to Tanzania, while we had a team from Tanzania to stay with us for a week in April 2009. In 2010 we enjoyed having a lively team from Brazil stay with us, while in 2012 we had an interesting young team from Venezuela.
