Clayton Holdings had the opportunity to sponsor three coach trips organised by the Chernobyl Children's Life Line, a charity committed to helping children suffering the after effects of the Chernobyl disaster and Belorussian economic situation.
The trips to West Midlands Safari Park, Warwick Castle, and Weston-Super-Mare proved to be a success. Ann Becke from CCLL sent this letter of thanks:
Dear Mr Clayton,
I just wanted to say a personal thank you to you and your Board for the very generous sponsorship for the coaches for the children this year. I have provided Peter Cox with several photographs with the children with the banner which we used wherever we could. The children particularly enjoyed the trip to Weston which could not have been possible without your very generous support.
We all tend to think that Chernobyl was a long time ago and sometimes forget that the legacy of such a disaster lives on and on. The children of Belarus face adversity of a degree that is difficult to comprehend. It is difficult to believe that they have to live and experience the legacy on a day to day basis. The children’s visit here is a bright spot in their lives and I also believe that the memories they take back and the friendships they have made help sustain them in the future. I believe this is especially true for the orphans.
