JINNEY Ring Craft Centre played host to six young girls affected by radioactive fall-out from the Chernobyl disaster of 1986, as they visited Bromsgrove for a recuperative holiday.

Headed by the Chernobyl Children's Lifeline charity, the trip saw the girls paired up with members from the Hanbury centre's weekly art group to take part in a host of activities.

The guests were presented with handmade bags, made by Lynda Harrison, containing art and craft supplies, school materials and gifts for them to take home to their families, including coffee, chocolate and vitamins.

The Jinney Ring Craft Centre provided a lunch for the girls and their host families, followed by a visit to the craft units where they had a go at glass-blowing and chocolate-tasting.

Art group members raise funds throughout the year to enable to children to make annual visits.
