Charity Clothing Bins

We have been lucky enough to have three Clothing Recycling Bins positioned in the Dockyard in Portsmouth which has enabled our Link to benifit from using the clothing to support the children when they visit and also to raise funds to support the recuprative breaks.

If you have unwanted good quality clothing that you would like to donate please contact us. email: fund.portsmouth@ccll.org.uk

The Chernobyl children

Waiting for the minibus

Excited, nervous,

Practising last minute Russian.

For the girls will be here any moment.

The girls who are part of our family for the month.

Girls who are on a respite holiday

From the radiation at home.

The bus is here!

They all start getting off,

Looking scared

I watch them smiling,

Wondering which two are ours.

We�re introduced by the leader.

I hug the girls and smile.

They look scared and nervous

As I introduce myself in Russian.

They smile at the thought I can speak bits of their language.

We all climb in the car

And begin to drive home.

I look forward to the month ahead

Knowing we’ll have laughs,

But at the same time

Dread the day they leave,

Knowing many tears will be shed

As they climb on the minibus

For the last time.
