The parish is outward looking and tries to support worthy causes overseas. As well as many of the usual Catholic charities doing good work at home and abroad, we support one with local connections:

The Uparo Project

The project is based among the poverty-stricken people in the Kilimanjaro region of North East Tanzania. The charity is raising money to build accommodation for much needed medical staff, who would then be on call throughout the whole 24 hours.

The building is under construction now, but further funds are still urgently needed to complete the work.

For further information, please contact Mrs. Veronica Downey (Trustee) Tel: 01308 862 542, or email via the parish office: bridport@prcdtr.org.uk

The Margaret Clitherow Trust

Founded in 2015, Margaret Clitherow Trust seeks to serve marginalised communities in the areas of faith, education, health and social inclusion. The Trust primarily serves the Travelling communities of England and Wales. From time to time, it also works with other marginalised groups both here and overseas.
