A school minibus for Chernobyl Children's Lifeline charity

Published on 13/08/19

Claremont Fan Court School were able to support the Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline once again this year by lending the charity a school minibus over the summer. The transport enables the charity to facilitate a month long visit for twelve children from Belarus who live in the areas most affected by the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The children have enjoyed the first two weeks of their visit to the Sherborne and Yeovil area and have made the most of the wonderful weather. Having seen the sea for the first time in their lives, they have been back to Weymouth beach several times since. Alongside various visits to the dentist and optician etc, they have also enjoyed trips to local visitor farms and have also spent lots of time playing in the local playground (the boys have been perfecting their football skills!). The charity aims to send the children home in better health having enjoyed fresh air and a good diet, with happy memories of a holiday that they will always remember.
