St Brigid’s Third World Group has been active for more than 20 years and we have increased our income to well over £100,00 per annum in recent years.
This has enabled us to provide grants of at least £5000 each year to each of our regular beneficiaries in Africa, South America and Asia and to make one-off donations in response to other requests.
In the last financial year 2019-20, we raised almost £131,000 from donations and fund-raising events. This included £23,000 including gift aid from a special collection in response to other requests for the victims of Cyclone Idai in Mozambique.
We made grants of almost £127,000 to our beneficiaries,

The beneficiaries we support have told us of the devastating impact of Covid 19 on the poorest people whom they are trying to help.
- Because of lockdown people are unable to earn even the pittance they might normally get.
- Schools are closed and children miss the nourishing food they rely on.
- The “wash your hands” and “keep your distance” are difficult to implement when you do not have easy access to soap and water and live in a crowded slum.
