The Group welcomed back the Chernobyl’s Children charity on Thursday 11th August for a third year. 12 teenagers aged between 13 and 15, all having problems from various cancers due to the nuclear fallout 30 years ago, arrived around 10 with their own doctor and translators where our ponies and team of volunteers were ready to take them riding around the fields.  It was such a pleasure to offer them the experience of riding which most of them had never had the opportunity to do before, as well as grooming, tacking up and leading the ponies.  They were also given horse shoes to decorate to take home as a memento which they did very well and enjoyed.  They are staying near Solihull whilst undergoing optical, dental and medical check-ups.  As well as health checks the charity organises various fun activities such as biking, horseriding, arts & crafts and picnics and buying them clothes.  We look forward to welcoming them back in 2017.
