Chernobyl Childrens Lifeline – North Wales Link (“Lifeline” ) is a charity that helps children who are suffering from the after-effects of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear disaster, an adverse health legacy that cruelly affects thousands of children being born right up to this day
Each year about ten “Lifeline” volunteers host* one or two children who are part of a small group (13 children this year) that enjoys an action-packed four-week holiday in the fresh air of North Wales
Throughout the holiday many local firms and voluntary organisations help “Lifeline” to make the holiday truly memorable by offering a range of activities, practical help and fun. The Rotary Club of Llandudno recently played a part in this by organising a “fun day” involving
a trip to see the Mayor, Cllr. David Hawkins
a ride on the Tram to the Copper Mines
the Orme Summit for play and lunch
tubing on the ski-slope
a slap-up tea at Adcote House hotel (courtesy of owners Rtns Mike and Diane Dean)
The group was led by “Lifeline” Chairman Gerrie Bayley and translator Maria Levishchenko (“Masha”). Rotarian Alan Guinn had arranged the day and President Rosalind Hopewell, Rtns Mike and Lindsay Pearce (hosts*), Gill Butler (a host*), Ashok Harshey and Mike and Diane Dean all helped things to go with a swing.
Rotary would like to thank all those involved who gave their time and/or their services to make the day out truly memorable and a great success.
