Island visit for young Chernobyl group

Health boosting trips running for 18 years

Youngsters from an Eastern European state, who are still affected by radiation fallout from the Chernobyl disaster, are currently enjoying what the Island has to offer.

The Friends of Chernobyl's Children is a Manx charity set up by husband and wife Norman and Joan Rivers.

They have been organising the trips for 18 years, with the aim of giving children from Belarus a health boost.
