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.
We want to hear from you!
If you think you could benefit from our support then help us to shape the future of our project but answering a few questions.
Our Widows Project is kindly funded by the Mary Pittius Trust held by Newport Congregational Church.
The Church Minister and his team will be available for Pastoral/Spiritual support.
This could include Memorial Services or celebrations of life.
