Good Shepherd Appeal

Thursday, 16 March 2023

Today we were very grateful to Sylvia from The Good Shepherd in Wolverhampton who came to talk to our Mission Team and Mini Vinnies about the work they do. The children found the talk very interesting and were so impressed with all the wonderful work the Good Shepherd does.

Mini Vinnies at Tesco!

Following their meeting earlier today (Friday 24th May) with Helen Peters the Mini Vinnies used the money they had raised from their charity work to buy food and resources from Tesco to donate to our local food bank.

The children walked to Tesco and chose food and resources which they know will be gratefully received by the food bank!

Well done Mini Vinnies – you’ve really made a difference and helped other people!

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!
