On April 22, a group of volunteers from the British and French embassies in Ukraine will commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Chernobyl catastrophe and fundraise for the Children of Chornobyl Relief and Development Fund [1] (CCRDF) and the British Limbless Ex-Service Men's Association [2] (BLESMA) by walking 63 miles (110 km) non-stop from the center of Kyiv to the edge of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
