Lincolnshire has lost one of the most prolific gentlemen, Derick Bell or as some of you may know him as “ one arm Derick “.
Derick was a disabled gentleman physically & mentally but that never stopped him over coming obsticals that stood in his path.
If you know the name then chances are he touched you in ways humanity doesnt do anymore. He was the kindest soul who loved life to the fullest, selling raffle tickets for good causes, working at Raf scampton for many many years, to which he was given the first civillian medal whilst working for the RAF by non other than the Queen for all his hard work.
Derick would pick a conversation with absolutely anybody and spoke proudly about his stories, visit many pubs, clubs and had a very big appitte for his grub where ever that might be. Not to mention his church attendance every sunday, always dressed smartly and proud.
Derick is also known for the amount of charity work he did for the Nomads Trust, often doing sleepouts, raffles, walks etc. He quite literally spent his whole life donating his time helping others.
So please Ladies & gentlemen help us in memory of Derick Bell to raise as much as we can for nomads trust who work around the clock for the homeless & less fortunate, a charity that was always so close to his heart.
we have spoken to lincolnshire echo and the nomad trust who are both saddened at the news of dericks passing, when we have reached our goal lincolnshire echo have confirmed that they will be there to capture the moment of handing over the donations as well as publishing another article
100% of donations that get recieved after justgiving take the 5% fee will go to nomad trust... please ladies & gentmen even if its £1 please donate to such a good cause that derick has been volunteering for so many years.
Thank you & god bless & of course a very happy christmas & new year.

I didn’t know Derick personally, but knew of him as a great local character, always friendly and chatty, and beautifully turned-out. I am happy to donate to The Nomad Trust in Derick’s memory.
