FOLLOWING the smash hit TV drama, 'Chernobyl', a group of children from Belarus have arrived in West Fife.

They enjoyed a day packed full of activities thanks to Active School Ambassadors on Tuesday as youngsters from Inverkeithing High taught football, dancing and swimming as part of a summer camp to the children.

The seven visitors, aged between nine and 11, are in West Fife for a recuperative holiday organised by the Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline Fife Link, which helps kids affected by the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in 1986.

They will be staying with host families for the next three weeks visiting the likes of Stirling Castle, Fordell Firs, Bannockburn, Dunfermline Fire Station and Dalgety Bay Bowling Club, as well as lots of trips to the seaside.

Jackie Niven, from Chernobyl Children's Lifeline Fife, said: "There are a lot of local businesses that have been helping us over the last couple of years.

"They're providing us with a lot of things to do!

"The children come here with not very much, from quite a deprived area in Stolin.

"We give them new clothes and packets of vitamins, plenty of fresh air and lots of fruit and veg.

"It's a boost to their health and wellbeing and can give them a clean bill of health.

"This is the first time they're away from home but they've settled very quickly.

"They are used to living in flats and normally with extended family so it's quite different for them here!

"They get a snapshot of Scotland's traditions, lots of fresh air and it's about making the most of what's on our doorstep."

Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline Fife have been bringing children over from Ukraine and Belarus for many years and are looking for more host families to help bring more children for a holiday in West Fife.
