Festive appeal for host families

The Buxton and Longnor Chernobyl Group is looking for volunteer families to take a mother and child for four days at Christmas.

Working with partner charity Children in Trouble, they will welcome six children aged between four and six. They have all been treated at the Minsk cancer hospital and will travel to England, with their mums and an interpreter for a three week recuperative holiday.

They will spend the first few days at High Ash Farm, Field Study Centre, Longnor before hopefully going to spend the main Christmas days (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day) with a host family in their home before returning to Longnor for the remainder of their holiday.

If you are interested in taking part please contact Denis Moors on 01298 25727 for further details.
