Mini Vinnies




The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been engaging with young people and education since its earliest days. Today the SVP England & Wales  highlights its continuing strong links with young people, through the development of its new 'Mini Vinnies' programme

'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'. 


Our Mini Vinnies group is open to all children from years 3 to 6 and meet weekly with  Mrs Catalano and      Mrs Paskin. The children are involved in fundraising activities, lead assemblies and promote interaction of the school with the local community.





All of the children took part in the Father Hudson "Walk a Mile" and collectively raised an incredible £1391.40. Well done everyone and thank you to the Mini Vinnies for organising this event.

In the run up to Christmas our Mini Vinnies co-ordinated a collection for the Samaritan`s Purse Shoebox Appeal. Once all the donations were in they then packaged everything up ready for collection!
