This year our coffee morning is raising money for the Monmouthshire group of Friends of Chernobyl Children, run entirely by local volunteers organised by Jane Hines from Llangwm. Ten children from the area of Belarus most affected by the after effects of the 1986 disaster will stay for a month with local families here in Monmouthshire. Appointments with dentists and opticians are arranged, as well as trips to the seaside etc. They return home with vitamins, new shoes, second hand clothes and lots of happy memories. Funds are needed to cover the cost of flights, visas, hiring a minibus – and even simple things like icecreams – treats that we all take for granted.
We do hope you can come and support our village event on
Saturday December 1st
10 – 12am
at Llansoy House
Hand-made gifts, cards, cakes, raffle etc
