Chernobyl children experience Derbyshire hospitality


This year, for the second time, 35 children took part in a full day of outdoor activities with their leaders and some of their host families.
They had the opportunity to try a whole range of exciting activities such as high ropes, the Rooftop Rider zip wire, archery tag and bush craft.
Chris Broome, the chair of the Bonsall and Derbyshire Dales branch of the charity, said: “We are massively grateful to Mount Cook Adventure Centre and to Outdoors for All for all their support in giving all our children such a memorable day out. The instructors in particular were all brilliant with the children.
“Representatives from each of the Links present all spoke to me during the day to say how much they and their children had enjoyed the day and expressing their support for repeating the experience again next year.
“All the activities were great fun and quite challenging in some cases. I could see all the children really engaging in all the activities with big wide smiles on their faces,” Chris added.
