Children from the areas affected by the world’s worst nuclear disaster in Chernobyl, enjoyed a healthy break in Cornwall thanks to the Chernobyl Children Lifeline charity.

Healthy eyes

Once again 10 young people visited Specsavers in Redruth as part of their visit for a free eye test with South West charity coordinator, Joan Packard.

Thank you

Joan Packard wrote to the store following the visit, thanking Jonathan and his team for their warm welcome. During the visit two of the children were provided with new glasses.

Joan said: ‘Thank you once again Jonathan for your time and patience. Life changed almost immediately for Justin and Yana – what a wonderful thing to do for them.’

A word from the director

Store director, Jonathan Eva, said: ‘We were delighted to welcome back Joan and another group of inspiring children. Despite their young age, the children are at an increased risk of developing cataracts. Without these visits the children’s health could deteriorate. We are just grateful that Joan is providing such incredible support.’
