Last month saw our second successive year of hosting the Chernobyl visit, on behalf of the Chernobyl Children’s Life Line Charity. Many thanks are due, with a great turnout from several local businesses and authorities alike providing food and gifts for the children, as well as a fun day out for all involved. Start-rite provided the children with shoes prior to them joining us for a BBQ consisting of a range of food donated by Makro wholesalers. There were gifts of soft toys from Natwest staff, books from Bertrams, and goodie bags compiled by a member our accounts staff, Jayne.
With the sun beaming down, Seething Airfield Fire & Rescue were on site, along with two of our local Community Police from the Broadland area, complete with fire engine and a police van, whilst Brands of Beccles completed the line-up, bringing a tractor unit and giving rides around the site, much to the amusement of the children. Even the local media turned up, as the Anglia TV news cameras added a small feeling of stardom and glamour to an all-round successful day.
A huge thanks to everyone that made the day possible, and we look forward to the potential of another visit next year!
