Venus and Cupid Trust

 

Rainbow House is a children’s charity based in Ormskirk that supports children from across the North West. We provide a range of therapeutic services to children and young people who have physical disabilities as a result of a neurological condition or brain injury. Our aim is to help our children to reach their full potential and gain as much independence as possible.

Friends of Chernobyl’s Children is a registered charity working throughout the UK providing recuperative holidays for children from needy families from the contaminated areas of Belarus affected by the radiation fallout of the Chernobyl disaster in 1986. 

Each child comes for a
month each year on a five-year programme, ideally from the age of 7 until they
are 12. 

The Lancaster group of Friends of Chernobyl’s
Children was formed in 2010 to bring a group of 7-11 year old socially
disadvantaged children from Belarus to Lancaster for a month. They receive lots
of loving care from local host families and take part in a schedule of fun
indoor and outdoor activities and trips. During their stay the children are
seen by a dentist and optician. All the money the Lancaster branch raises is
spent on airfares, visas and other necessary expenses to ensure the children
get the most out of their recuperative stay in the area. 

The Venus & Cupid Arts Trust took over the much loved sculpture on Morecambe promenade in 2015 with public fundraising. The heavy frosts of 2018 caused unexpected damage. Venus has been under repair in the Morecambe Arndale Centre and we are raising funds to return her to the prom as soon as possible.

Please join our walk to help!

Tickets: £10-£12 with big reductions for children
