NOBODY COMES


An opportunity to hear the author of a deeply moving
and powerful true story
Thursday 2nd October 7pm Church of the Annunciation

NOBODY COMES

‘Nobody Comes’ is the true story of the (ultimately successful) endeavour to find, bring to England and adopt a child from an ‘orphanage in post-revolutionary Romania despite the unhelpful and sometimes obstructive attitude of both the UK and the Romanian authorities.

The author describes the horrors of Orphanage Number One in Bucharest, the poverty he encountered and the endemic corruption which he faced on a daily basis and his struggle to raise awareness both in Romania and the UK of the damage inflicted upon children by the general indifference to their plight.

The book also recounts the remarkable friendship which was forged with a Bucharest University graduate who became interpreter, guide and, ultimately, Godfather to Dominic, the child who was rescued. The priest who baptised Dominic, Father Frank Flynn, is now serving in Chesterfield.

The author, His Honour Judge Anthony Cleary, will be giving an illustrated talk at the Church of the Annunciation, Spencer Street, on Thursday 2nd October at 7.00pm. 
 
This is an open event and all are welcome.

HIGH SHERIFFS CHARITY WALK SUPPORTING LOCAL MOUNTAIN RESCUE TEAMS

High Sheriff of Derbyshire, David Coleman has set himself the challenge to walk the county boundary to raise funds for our mountain rescue teams.  The walk is being done in one day stages over a couple of months.  There is an open invitation to you to join him for any of the stages - or part of one - as a little support and encouragement goes a long way!  Find out more information about the route and the dates he is walking on his website.

Here is his report after the first day:

Good morning everyone,

Pleased to report a successful first day yesterday! 16 miles down, 204 to go.

A small but select band of 4 walkers, neighbour Paul Brown, former colleague Theresa Peltier, Chris Smith of DMRT and I completed the whole distance, with others including Robin Knott from DMRT and Hilary walking part of the way. Great support from Derby Mountain Rescue Team and friends John and Carol Smalley, with hot drinks, loads of snacks and encouragement. 

Just going out on a short "warm down" walk locally to relieve the muscle stiffness!!

Next stage takes place on Tuesday 5th from Meden Square, Pleasley to Whitwell Station, 12 miles, starting at 0930 - join me if you can, I know the kids are off school but bring them as well!! See the details on www.derbyshirehighsheriff.co.uk

Please don't forget to support my fundraising by donating at
 

Best wishes,

David
