John and Rosie will be making their 47th trip to Ukraine in August where they support many families with severely disabled children.

Rosie said: “The plight of Ukrainian people has been highlighted recently in the TV drama about Chernobyl. The Chernobyl disaster may have happened 33 years ago but we know from personal experience that there is still a huge need for help.”
