Chernobyl's Children


On Saturday 29th June 2013
10.00 am Ė 12 noon

At The Old Church House, Oxhill
(In the Old Chapel, if wet)

We would be delighted if you and your family could join us to support this worthy charity.  There will be coffee and homemade biscuits and various stalls available including cakes, plants, DVDís and tombola.  There will also be face painting and childrenís games.  If you would like to make donations of cakes, jams, chutneys, plants or raffle prizes please contact Anne Marshall. 

It is over 25 years since the Chernobyl disaster and people in a wide area surrounding the site are still suffering its after effects.  The younger generation are particularly affected and Chernobylís Children aims to offer a monthís holiday to these children in a country far from the difficult conditions they live in.  These holidays have long term health benefits to the children and the more visits they have, the better their overall health.  The children are delightful and you will be able to meet this yearís group from Belarus at the coffee morning.

We are always in need of new host families.  The children come for a month in June/July each year.  Two of the children are hosted in Oxhill and it is a wonderful and rewarding experience for them and indeed for the host families too.  If you would like to know more details regarding supporting the charity or possibly hosting a child please contact Anne Marshall or Gaynor Van Dijk.  We will be happy to discuss our experiences with you.  Oxhill has always been very generous in its support of the charity and for this we are most grateful.  Thank you all.
