Successful trip for FOCC 2018

New health check and numerous outings

Children from Chernobyl have returned to Belarus after this year's trip to the Island.

Charity "Friends of Chernobyl's Children" has organised visits for the last 19 years to help young people who have had to grow up in the area devastated and poisoned by radioactivity after the reactor at the Chernobyl nuclear power station exploded in 1986.

Founder of the Isle of Man FOCC, Norman Rivers, says the 18 children who came to the Island this year enjoyed wonderful weather for their trips - and also had a unique new health check.
