Mini VInnies 2018-19 (Junior SVP)

This after school club is a junior Saint Vincent de Paul (SVP) group ran by the children, supported by Mrs Scotson.

The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been engaging with young people and education since its earliest days. Today the SVP England & Wales is pleased to highlight its continuing strong links with young people, through the development of its new 'Mini Vinnies' programme - a ground-breaking Primary Schools initiative, based on good work done in Australia, piloted in the Diocese of Shrewsbury, and which is seen as having, "the potential to significantly contribute to the future of our Society."

'Mini Vinnies' are children aged between 7 to 11 (or younger) who, with the permission of their parents and the support of their Schools, are encouraged to embark on their first steps as possible 'Vincentians for life'.  

As Mini Vinnies, the youngsters have their own 'treasured' Prayer, Pledge and Badge, a dedicated website and a range of bright and colourful documents which guide them in their formative steps - helping and enabling them to become in every sense, young Vincentians - or 'Mini Vinnies'.

Westy Care Home

We have been frequent visitors at a local care home, where we always receive a warm welcome from the lovely residents who always express their thanks and appreciation of our visits!

Toy Sale!

Thanks to support from our friends and families, the toy sale organised by Mini Vinnies was a huge success! A big thank you to all involved. The money raised has been sent to JUMP! A locak charity providing photograph and film memories for the families of children with life-limiting and terminal illnesses. They money was greatfully received and any toys left over were donated to a local charity shop.

St Rocco's

Our Mini Vinnie's have selflessly given up their playtimes to sell Flumpets, raising money for St Rocco's! We are waiting to hear how much we have raised...but the childrens' efforts have paid off as have now sold out! Well done Mini Vinnies #faithinaction
