Please see below for some very sad news about Judy Harrison, a great supporter of BWCC until a few years ago when she became ill. Her husband John was a previous president, benefactor and stalwart of the club.
Message from Sarah Beaumont-Lall
It is with enormous sadness that I write to you with the news that we lost our wonderful, brave mother Judy Harrison on Saturday 3rd November. As you are aware, Mum had been very unwell for almost two years, and on top of her own health challenges, she also cared for our father John, who we lost this March. As you can imagine, the void in my life, and in that of my four brothers Charles, James, Tom and Peter, and our families, is immense. We are trying to find comfort in the knowledge that they are together again.
Mum’s funeral will take the form of a Requiem Mass at the church where they were married, St Thomas More’s Church, Braybon Avenue, Brighton BN1 8LA on Monday 3rd December at 1pm, with a reception afterwards at The Ladies Mile, 2 Mackie Avenue, BN1 8RA. We would very much like as many friends and family to come and celebrate and give thanks for Judy’s happy and fulfilled life. Although there will be flowers from family and from close friends in France, we are asking that donations in lieu of flowers are made to The Bart’s Charity through the funeral directors Bungards, 90 Sackville Road, Hove BN3 3HE (or via their website www.bungards.co.uk ). This charity funds research into cancer and palliative care, and is run by St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London, where Mum and Dad both trained – and of course where they met.
I’d be incredibly grateful if you could share this with BWCC members who knew Mum and Dad.
With very best wishes, and on behalf of the whole family,
