John and Rosie, who run the Chernobyl children’s appeal and won the Lifetime Achievement award at the PT’s Pride in Peterborough ceremony last week, will be using the money when they make their next trip to Ukraine in time for the Orthodox Christmas on January 7.

The couple support a sanatorium, a centre for disabled teenagers, an Age UK group and many families.

Rosie said: “It was a fantastic evening and we would like to thank everyone who supported us on a very wet and stormy night. The money we raised will make a huge difference for the people we support who have so very little.”
