RAK Ceramics’ John Anscombe is once again joining other local anglers to help a group of children from Chernobyl. Together with Stedham Angling Club, John will be taking the group on a one-day fishing excursion along the south coast, as part of the Chernobyl Children’s Life Line initiative. The trip forms part of a three-week visit, which John and fellow fishermen have supported for the last five years. It aims to help boost the children’s immune systems, enabling them to spend time in a clean environment, to eat uncontaminated food and enjoy time together. John and fellow supporters also send regular packages to Chernobyl, to provide extra support when the children return home.
Founded in 1991, Chernobyl Children’s Life Line is a Surrey-based charity that works with both child victims of the disaster and their families. As part of its extensive work, children spend recuperative breaks in the UK with host families, twice a year, and enjoy a range of activities, including fishing, museums trips and a day at London Zoo. Since 1992, 40,000 children from Belarus have visited Britain and 100% of all monies raised by the charity are donated directly to the cause.
All activities take place during the leisure time of volunteers, like John. During the working week, John selects tiles for customers at RAK’s Petersfield warehouse. He is one of a growing number of RAK employees that supports and raises money for local charities.
