On behalf of the Friends of Chernobyl's Children (FOCC), Melbourn, I would like to say an enormous thank you to all those organisations, societies and individuals who support our charity.

Our incredibly generous friends and supporters have once again enabled us to bring over to the UK a group of 17 desperately underprivileged children from Belarus. The children returned home with suitcases jam-packed with clothes, toiletries, vitamins & basic medicines.

The children have benefited enormously from a month of clean fresh air, nutritious wholesome food and an amazing programme of activities.

In particular, we would like to say a huge thank you to Melbourn Baptist Church, who once again generously provided us with their wonderful facilities, thereby enabling the children to have a secure base for the duration of their stay. We are also immensely grateful to the United Reformed Church in Melbourn for their readiness to help and support us.

Finally, I would like to give a special mention to the Black Horse pub in Melbourn, who provided numerous lunches for the children and who kindly opened up their garden for the children and entertained them with fantastic activities.

We cannot thank you enough for your continued support, which is so vital for these children.

On behalf of the FOCC, Melbourn I would like to wish you and your families a very relaxing summer.

Nicola Dunklin

Coordinator

FOCC Melbourn
