30th Anniversary of the Chernobyl Disaster

On 26th April we remembered the anniversary of this terrible disaster. BBC Radio Cumbria marked the occasion by speaking to Karina, who is now 23 but was supported from the age of 8 by our charity. Her interview can be heard here or the full item on the BBC Radio iPlayer at 1 hour 10 mins and about 40 secs. There is also an article here - look for 11:54!

ITV also ran a great item on the Border News, which can be found here
