Fun on the River for Chernobyl Children with MVS Severn
MVS Severn Unit joined with Tewkesbury Sea Cadets to help give a party of children from the Chernobyl area a day out on the River Avon.
Even though the nuclear disaster took place over 30 years ago the area is still contaminated and causes many serious health problems.
Head of Unit Nic Price said, “Every Summer the charity Chernobyl Children’s Project brings children to Britain for a recuperative holiday away from the contaminated area and we were pleased to support our local group.
All the children are in remission from cancer and a holiday to the clean air in Britain helps boost their immune system helping them resist or recover from serious illnesses”.
