Children who were affected by the aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster enjoyed an activity filled visit to Kinloss barracks yesterday.
The ten children from the Stolin district of Belarus enjoyed playing games of rounders and football while also participating in a cake decorating competition.
They are coming to the end of their 28 day trip to Scotland hosted by The Chernobyl Children Life Line which aims to provide a recuperative holiday for children affected by the disaster.
Corporal Chris Vaughan, who helped to run the visit, said: “It was a real pleasure to spend the day with the kids who never seemed to stop smiling the whole time.
“Given the continual health issues they face at home it was good to help them have a good time while they are over here.”
The activities also involved a trip to the fire section where everyone had a go at using a fire hose under the watchful eye of the RAF fire section staff.
The day was rounded off by a demonstration of field cooking before sampling the rations on offer.
Tom Heggie, the local coordinator of Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline who accompanied the group, thanked the regiment for its continuing support to such a worthwhile charity.
