Dorchester and District Amnesty Group will not, sadly, be holding their Tree of Hope event in South Street this year.

We are, of course, continuing to send cards and messages of support to prisoners of conscience world-wide, and anyone who would like to find out more can email for rights for details of this year’s cases.

Just sending a non-religious and non-political card saying “You are not forgotten” can make a huge difference.
