Swan boat in Albert Park

Albert Park in Middlesbrough is playing host to 24 children from Belarus who were made ill from the fallout from the Chernobyl disaster.

The group of 24 youngsters will enjoy the park’s facilities from 10am to 2pm on Wednesday (August 3) as guests of Middlesbrough Rotary Club which organises the annual visit.

They will use facilities including the swan boats and roller skating rink before having a bite to eat at the park’s Visitor Centre.

The scheme, run nationally by the Chernobyl Children’s Life Line, has been running for 11 years, offers the youngsters a month’s holiday in England to build up their strength.

All will suffer in later life from the after-effects of the 1986 disaster, their average life span being just 48 years.
