Children from Chernobyl Visit Reading Valley
Reading Valley were delighted to bring the spirit of London 2012 to their young guests who had travelled all the way from the Ukraine. They are staying with families in the UK to build up their immune systems as they and their families live in a legacy of the disaster at Chernobyl.
As the Olympics was in full swing in London. Reading had a swing of its own. Lots of fun games, that the children were much better at than we were, followed by a big tasty dinner. It took a while to remember to pause for the translater but the children did really well at understanding what was going on, some would say more than the adults!
It was a pleasure to meet them and we wish them well in their futures.
