Kirton Light Railway

The annual visit of the Chernobyl children took place on July 22. The group consisted of eighteen children, mostly aged around ten years, together with their supporters from both Ukraine and the Lions Club.
The day was sunny and warm, and ideal to ensure that all the kids (as well as the Chernobyl children!) got at least a couple of rides on the garden railway. A big thank you is due not only to the members of the Lions Club but also to the usual group of local helpers. A special mention should be made of the sterling effort made by Brenda Reditt who cooked or supplied almost all the refreshments for the children. Never were so many sandwiches, cakes and buns consumed in such a short period of time!
When the train rides were over there were smiles on all the faces, and we were also able to hand over to the Tree House Children’s Hospice in Ipswich a cheque for £180. The group was then taken by the Felixstowe Lions Club for lunch and to visit the beach – a rare treat for residents of the Chernobyl area.
Thank you to all who supported the event in so many different ways.
