Story

My mum, Celia Brigstocke, John’s niece founded JBMS 25 years ago. Sadly she passed away last Thursday 16th August. She had been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer a couple of months ago but after a 72 hour fight died of a perforated bowel. We are devastated as a family but are pleased that she is no longer in pain and is at peace with her Uncle John by her side.

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.
