Once again members of Middlesbrough Erimus Rotary club have supported the annual visit of children from Belarus. The 20 children and 2 interpreters are on Teesside for 4 weeks and the club entertained them for a day including a visit to the Cleveland Fire Station where they hosed down some of the firefighters, roller skating , boating and face painting at Albert Park, ten pin bowling and a pizza meal at Teesside park. The children are in need of respite care from the radiation which still affects their country following the Chernobyl nuclear power plant explosion in 1986. The Rotary members, translators and children had a great day.
