From Belarus to Blackburn...

3 June 2015

Ewood Park played host to a special group of visitors on a ground tour on Tuesday.

Ten children from Mogilev, Belarus, an area severely affected by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster of 1986, are visiting Lancashire for a month-long recuperative break.

The party of 7-12 year olds, and their accompanying interpreters, spent the day at Ewood as guests of the football club.

Rovers have supported and hosted visits by the Friends of Chernobyl's Children charity since 2004. Further information on their organisation can be found at www.focc.org.uk.
