Mini Vinnie's (Youth SVP) Summer Challenges

Seeds of Hope – we are asking students to design a “calm zone” for the community garden in Bradford. The winning design will be incorporated in to the garden itself and an (optional) entry donation of £3 will go towards the garden itself. (Click on the 'seeds of hope' image below to follow a link for more detail).

Summer Reading Challenge – this is an opportunity for children to read 6 books throughout the summer. Our booklet provides activities to do for each book – one related to the book and the other encouraging social action in their local community. Children can use library books, their favourite books, books they haven’t read yet or new titles to complete the challenge.

All information regarding the challenges is available on the Mini Vinnies microsite www.svp.org.uk/mini-vinnies
