    I devote one week a year to taking photos for a charity, and this year it is the Chernobyl Children's Project. I just got back, and you can find the photos here:

    If you feel moved to make a donation, you'll find a link for online donations on the 'How to help' page.

    Funny, I was talking to a colleague this afternoon who has been bringing kids and teenagers who are affected over here for years.

    That's a great website Ben.

    Rather like the one that the woman on a motorbike did. Anyone remember the link to that?
     
  6. An amazing report Ben, some of the kids have been coming to our parish for sometime, i understand that a month in the UK adds years to their life expectancy. really hope the money you raise exceeds the sum you've set and blesses them massively

    Thanks, Paul.

    The site you're referring to was a hoax. In fact, she did the same tour I did, just wore her bike jacket and took her helmet in with her, then added some photos of her bike taken outside the zone. Not sure why she did it, since the site would have worked fine without the deception ...
