THE Bristol Link of Chernobyl Children's Life Line is always on the lookout for families who could share their homes for just two weeks during the summer.

Andy said: "It is estimated that a month staying with families here, eating nourishing food, away from the relentless radiation and breathing clean air can add up to two years to their life expectancy and reduce the effect of the harsh winter. There is a network of support for host families – you would not be on your own. 

"The children will take part in lots of activities that we have organised on their behalf. These activities range from sports to the arts, from local visits to coach trips to the sea or countryside. There will be two interpreters with the group and they are on hand around the clock should there be any language difficulties or for general advice and assistance."

There will also be the opportunity to support the charity by attending a fundraising barn dance in Warmley on Saturday May 6.

It takes place at Warmley Community Centre, 20 Deanery Road, Warmley, BS15 9JB, from 7.30-11pm. Tickets - adults £8 and children (under 12) £3 - include supper and should be purchased in advance.
