Operation Christmas Child
On Thursday (8th November) our Mini Vinnies helped to load the van with the shoeboxes we had collected for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.
Thanks to your donations we were able to send 34 boxes to the charity.
On Wednesday 17th October, the Mini Vinnies helped to gather the wonderful tins, packets, fruit and vegetables which had been donated by the children and families in school. They presented them in church ready for our Harvest Festival. All of the donations will be taken to the ‘Changing Lives’ Centre at Plawsworth to help those who may not have had a meal today.
On Monday 15th October, our new Mini Vinnies were commissioned during a whole school assembly. They were given special certificates to show they have become part of the Saint Vincent de Paul society. There were also some of last year’s Mini Vinnies who were welcomed back with some extra responsibilities of President, Vice-President, Treasurer and Secretary.
Have a look back at what we did last year.
