    Story

    John Bradburne 1921-1979, he was a mystic, poet and friend of many. He served with the Gurkhas in Malaya and Burma in World War Two, then became a pilgrim seeker. His search led him through England, Europe and the Holy Land until he got to Zimbabwe. In 1962 he went to Zimbabwe to 'seek a cave' & found Mutmewa Leprosy Settlement. There he tended to 80 leprosy patients with loving care, laying down his life for them in on 5th September 1979.

    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.

      Thank you for all your fantastic donations for the Cause, it has been hugely appreciated. It is with a heavy heart that I write this. On Thursday 16th August, we lost our wonderful mum. She was diagnosed with brain cancer 2 months ago but died after fighting for 72 hours with a perforated bowel. We are all heartbroken but were with her until the end and now she is finally out of pain and at peace. We believe mum will be helping us along this cause from heaven with John.
