Local help for Chernobyl continues 20 years on!
Caterham Oxted & Godstone Lions Club are this year again supporting the people of Gomel, Belarus many of whom suffer from the after effects of the Chernobyl nuclear explosion in 1986, some 60 miles from the City. 

Over 20 bags of clothing and goods were taken to the warehouse on the Isle of Sheppey where they were sorted, weighed and labelled in both English and Russian prior to being loaded on the lorry on 6th September. The goods arrived in Gomel a few days ago as part of a consignment expected to weigh about 14 tons and filling a very large lorry!  COG Lions also made a financial contribution to the transportation costs.

The trust for Chernobyl children arranged for 12 children, siblings of some in the children’s hospice in Belarus, to come to the UK for a month in August. A member of COG Lions hosted a 9 year old girl for part of this time and other Lions from the District provided days out for the children at Chatham Dockyard and at Chessington World of Adventure. 

The Club has also contributed towards sight equipment for school 27 in Gomel.

COG Lions would like to thank all those who helped by providing clothes and goods for those less fortunate than themselves.
