CHILDREN from Chernobyl will be visiting the Spinnaker Tower as part of their trip to Portsmouth.

Chernobyl Children’s Life Line set up for a group of 12 children to visit the tower on June 19.

The children have been in Portsmouth as part of a recuperative trip to help boost their immune systems.

The charity brings child victims of the Chernobyl disaster to the UK for recuperative breaks - having a month away from contaminated water, food and air.

Councillor Rob Wood, cabinet member for children and education at Portsmouth City Council, said: ‘It’s a good opportunity to raise the profile of Chernobyl Children, and increase awareness of the wonderful work the charity does to help the children regain their health.

‘I fully support the work they do and wish them every success in their continued efforts.’
