CHILDREN affected by the fallout of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster have been enjoying the simple pleasures of the clean south coast air.
Marion Stapley, the chairwoman of the Portsmouth and Hayling Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline, brings 12 children from Borodyanka, Ukraine to the UK every year for one month.
While they are here they are given dental and eye check-ups and enjoy fun days out.
Marion said: ‘We’ve been to Northney Farm, on Hayling, the Historic Dockyard and will be at Fareham Fire Station today.
‘When I ask if the trip is what they expected they say it’s 100 times better. They love it’.
