Story

My mum, Celia Brigstocke has run JBMS for over 25 years. Sadly she has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and will not be able to carry on her work for the charity. So I am taking on her role as this will be her legacy after she has gone.

John Bradburne has been marked for sanctity. After an extraodinary life he dedicated ten years to looking after a community of people suffering from leprosy at Mutemwa in Zimbabwe until his murder in 1979. To go forward with the beatification process fundraising is essential. The charity has a Postulator from Perugia, Italy leading the cause but there still remains a huge amount of research, checks and interviews to be conducted. This will help present the best case for him to be made a saint at the Congregation of Causes for Saints. He could become the first saint for Zimbabwe and the first in England for over 400 years. The John Bradburne Memorial Society’s (JBMS) main role is to support the leper colony in Zimbabwe. Please support this cause and do read further information on the JBMS website www.johnbradburne.com.

    May God bless you as the keeper of Celia's legacy, who is "sainted" herself. She, and all associated with JBMS, are always in my prayers.
