CHILDREN affected by the Chernobyl disaster are visiting Grantham, invited by the Vale of Belvoir branch of Friends of Chernobyl’s Children.

Each year, volunteers host a group of youngsters from Eastern Europe. The trips are designed to offer them a respite where they can detoxify their systems.

They receive health checks, dental appointments and vitamins, and are also taken to the Grantham branch of Specsavers for free eye exams and glasses.
