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


‘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.
