Bori (Borbala) Benko.It is with profound shock and sadness that we let you know that Bori (Borbala) Benko, aged 24, has tragically died. 

Bori has been a vital and energetic member of the Cathedral community for over three years and prior to that worked as a volunteer Youth worker in the parish of Lexden, Colchester.

Bori will be honoured and long remembered at the Cathedral for her enthusiastic, generous and infectious faith; her warmth and commitment to serve others. 

Bori was a deeply committed Christian and was exploring the option of offering for ordination in the Church of England. She would have been confirmed this Sunday, 28 November.

Please pray for all those affected by her untimely death and in particular her parents, Krisztina and Ferenc and brother, Ferenc.

Bori will be very sadly missed by all her family and friends both in Hungary and the wider community along with the staff and children at the school where she worked.

There is a special place of prayer in Bradford Cathedral where candles can be lit, prayers said, and comments written in a book of condolence for Bori and those affected by the tragic events of last Saturday night.

May she be at peace with her Lord and Saviour and may her legacy live on in those she inspired.
