THIS girl’s beaming smile from up high on a college’s climbing wall sums up her visit to the area.
Natalia Aliasiuk, 10, was one of ten youngsters on a visit set up by the Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline.
Each year it hosts children affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.
Organised by the Lee-on-the-Solent branch, this trip to St Vincent College, in Gosport, was one of many fun activities.
The group from Belorussia visited other schools and Gosport fire station.
Trips further afield were also organised, including to London to see Buckingham Palace and London Bridge.
All the children were hosted by families who offered up their homes for free to the charity.
Research has shown that staying in the UK for four weeks prolongs the children’s life expectancy by two years.
The charity has 135 groups across the country.
