Mini Vinnies with Helen Peters

Friday, 24 May 2019

Children listening to Helen Peters

On Friday 24th May the Mini Vinnies met with Helen Peters who works with our local food bank.

The Mini Vinnies heard how the food bank is in need of food and resources and how they could help!

Helen gave the children lots of useful information and later on today they have already planned to do something to support Helen and her work!

We are grateful to Helen for coming in to talk to our children and we hope to work closely with her in the future!

CAFOD Lent Fast Day

Friday, 15 March 2019

CAFOD donation envelopes

On Friday 15th March the children all took part in CAFOD Lent Fast Day.

Everyone gave up their playtime snack during morning break time and donated pennies to CAFOD instead.  This act helps us to both fast and give alms – two of the things the church asks us to do during Lent.

Well done everyone for taking part.

The Mini Vinnies on their Charity Winter Walk!

On Friday 23rd November the children from the Mini Vinnies team in school took part in a Winter Walk to raise money for the SVP charity.

The idea came from the children who wanted to raise money for the SVP and thought a sponsored walk around the local area would be a good idea!

Well done Mini Vinnies for your great ideas to raise money for the SVP and taking part in the sponsored walk even when the weather was REALLY cold!

Our display of all of the tins donated

On Monday 24th and Tuesday 25th September the families of our school donated lots and lots of tins of food which we will send to the Good Shepherd Appeal in Wolverhampton who work with and help the homeless.

We are so grateful for the generosity that our families have shown in thinking about and helping others in our community who are in need.

We created a lovely display of all the tins for our Harvest Mass in school and the Good Shepherd Appeal helpers will be collecting the tins this week and putting them to very good use.

Thank-you everyone!
