The BEARR Trust Annual Lecture and Book Launch

You are cordially invited to BEARR’s Annual Lecture, which this year will
be held at the Foundling Museum, 40 Brunswick Square, London WC1 (north
side of the square, 5 minutes from Russell Square underground station) on
Monday 26 June 2006. The lecture will be

FOUNDLINGS IN RUSSIA

and will be given by

Kate Adie

The event also marks the launch of the paperback of Kate Adie’s book
“Nobody’s Child”, which looks at the plight of abandoned children around
the world. Kate takes a particular interest in this subject as she was
herself adopted at birth. Copies of the book will be available at a
discount, and Kate will be pleased to sign them.

The Foundling Museum is the perfect venue for such an event. The Museum
commemorates the Foundling Hospital, set up in 1739 on the same site by
Captain Coram. Coram’s supporters included Handel, who left a manuscript
of The Messiah to the institution and played an annual concert there to
raise funds. Hogarth, another supporter, persuaded his artist friends to
donate paintings to the Hospital, which thus came to house the first
public art gallery in England. Paintings by Hogarth, Gainsborough and
others now hang in the gallery where the lecture will take place.

Guests for the lecture will be able to visit the Museum beforehand. (It
is normally closed to the public on Mondays). The Museum will be open
from 5.00, with the lecture starting at 6.00, to be followed by a
reception (white wine and canapés), which will allow for further
networking with others with an interest in this field.

The BEARR Trust promotes and supports cooperation, especially in health
and social welfare, between the third sector in the UK and appropriate
partners in Russia and other CIS countries, with a view to strengthening
civil society.

Please bring along any friends and contacts who may be interested. The
charge of £20 per person includes admission to the museum, lecture and
reception. Voluntary donations (which can be gift-aided) would further
support BEARR’s work as we launch our new website. Please fill in the
attached form and return it as indicated as soon as possible, and at the
latest by 15 June.

We look forward to seeing you on 26 June.
