AN ORGANISATION which raises cash to give children suffering the aftermath of a nuclear disaster a month-long holiday has made a strong start to fundraising.
The Lee-on-the-Solent Chernobyl Children Lifeline Link is asking people to donate jam jars full of cash.
In three weeks the organisation has received £118.
As reported, the group will bring 10 children aged between 10 and 12 from Belarus to Lee-on-the-Solent on May 26.
Much of the fallout from the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine landed in Belarus, with long-lasting medical and economic effects.
To donate call the group’s chairwoman, Patricia Unwin, on 07769 948457 or Anna Curd on 07989 088070.
