CWL is proud to be a Patron of the Ayrshire Link of the Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline - 30th July

CWL Chenobyl

Community Windpower Ltd is proud to be a Patron of the Ayrshire Link of the Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline charity. Through our annual donation of £500, CWL is proud to provide sponsorship for one child to visit Ayrshire for 4 weeks of respite.

The charity provides respite holidays for children in Belarus and Ukraine who are still suffering from the effects of the Chernobyl disaster. This July a group of 10 Ukrainian children came over to Ayrshire thanks to the hard work and endless fundraising by Chairman Michael Lafferty and his team of volunteers. Of these children, Diana was selected to benefit from the sponsorship from Community Windpower which covered the costs of her trip.

Diana and her classmates visited the Ayrshire area for 4 weeks and in that time visited lots of different places including Blair Drummond Safari Park, Ayr Farm Park, Culzean Castle and many more places including a trip to the dentist and the doctors.

In her Thank You letter, Diana wrote:

“Thank you for 4 weeks of magic, I had time like I have never had before, I enjoyed everything. I miss you much and my host family my wish is that I will come back.

I want to thank dentist and opticians who gave us new glasses and checked my teeth. Also people who helped entertain us it was magical.

I want to thank Community Wind power for giving money to pay for me to come. They are very kind to help children. My parents all say big thanks to these people who do not know me yet help me. They have helped me because I have come home feeling better and healthier.

My favourite time was stay over night in church hall it was very much fun, have games and dances. There was no time I was bored or did not enjoy, each day was special!

Thank you, thank you, I wait for your visit to us next year you are welcome to my home. I wait for our meeting with impatience.

Thank you to everyone from all children who made us healthy and happy.”

The Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline charity is an amazing charity and Community Windpower Ltd are proud to be a part of it with sponsorship continuing to be provided for one child each year for the foreseeable future.
