Our First Drop in session will take place at Newport Congregational Church on the 16th June 10.30am 'till 12.30pm Come along, say hello, have a cup of tea and a chat! 

The Mary Pittis Trust was set up in the 19th century to support “widows of the parish of Newport”.

It is funded through a legacy Trust administered by Newport Congregational Trust, who have donated funding to Age UK Isle of Wight to create a service to help to support those bereaved.
Although this work will begin in Newport we are hoping to expand this Island wide in the future.
We are looking to start a conversation with members of the Newport community that may benefit from this support, in order to find out what type of support they would like to see offered as part of it.
