Mini Vinnies

Our Mini Vinnies group is the primary school branch of the St Vincent de Paul Society. The Mini Vinnies' motto is 'turning concern into action.' They meet regularly to organise and discuss how to help others in need in our school community and beyond. As members of Mini Vinnies, they promise to make a difference in their world. Our Mini Vinnies group also work towards their 'Faith in Action' award.

Our Mini Vinnies have made a recent difference in the following ways: 

  • Foodbank collection
  • Rosary prayer group
  • Mission Together fundraiser
  • Marking Red Wednesday for Aid to the Church in Need
  • Crib exhibition for the Bethlehem Care and Hospice Trust
  • Christmas shoebox collection for the parish
  • Football fundraiser for Cafod
  • Lent prayer group

Diocesan Creative Challenge

In celebration of the Year of the Word: The God Who Speaks, Hallam Diocese have launched a creative challenge for children to beautifully illustrate one of the Beatitudes in the style of the Lindisfarne Gospels. Mini Vinnies are leading this in our school.
