Chernobyl’s Children charity visit our Group

3 July 2014

The Group joined forces with the Chernobyl’s Children charity on Thursday 3rd July and welcomed them to their venue at Home Farm, Compton Verney.

The Chernobyl’s Children charity has funded 8 children aged between 8 and 17 to a visit to this area for three weeks.  They are staying with host families whilst undergoing optical, dental and medical check-ups.  As well as health checks the charity organises various fun activities such as swimming, horseriding, visits to farms and schools, kite flying and picnics.

Our ponies and volunteers really enjoyed taking the children around the fields and through the wood where they had a treasure hunt.  It was a beautiful sunny day and a pleasure to offer them the opportunity to ride as well as grooming and tacking up the ponies.  We look forward to welcoming them back in 2015.
