Cabaret fund-raiser helps the orphans of Chenobyl

GENEROUS staff at Crewe's South Cheshire College staged a night of entertainment this week to fund a mercy mission to Belarus.

Staff members Isobel Atlasi and Clive Huntbach organised a special cabaret fund-raising event on Tuesday night to raise cash towards their Easter convoy mission.

This will be the third year that the college has supported a trip to Belarus, which is co-ordinated by the Heart Hope Help Humanitarian Aid Charity.

During their trek they will visit some of the worst affected areas of the Chernobyl disaster which killed more than 30 people in 1986.

They will also be visiting a series of hospitals and orphanages delivering items of bedding, clothing and toiletries and offering other assistance wherever they can.

College lecturer Isobel said: "So many people were affected by the Chernobyl disaster and we aim to support the victims in any way we can."

In Belarus and the Ukraine alone 27,000 children live in orphanages and nine out of ten children have health problems as a result of the incident.
