Who are the Mini Vinnies?
Mini Vinnies are 7 to 11 year olds based in schools and parishes across England and Wales, and in several other countries across the world. They come together to form a part of the St. Vincent de Paul Society England and Wales, a voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty in all its forms. Mini Vinnies meet to pray, discuss and support however they can to help make a difference in their communities.
“…turning concern into action…”

Turning Lives Around
The Lantern Festival
This Christmas we enjoyed visiting Cross Flatts Park along with our School Council friends to take part in the annual Lantern Festival! A big thank you for the invitation and to all those parents and staff who came out to support us. Despite the weather conditions we had a wonderful evening singing carols, watching a festive pantomine, enjoying the refreshments, and most of all seeing all the lovely animals. A super way for our community to come together and spread the festive cheer!
Milk for Lent Project
Our Mini Vinnies organised the school and collected 200 long life milks for the food bank at St. Vincent de Paul’s.
Guide Dogs for the Blind
Our Mini Vinnies made and sold Christmas cards to our school and families. They raised £30 and decided to donate it to The Guide Dogs for the Blind charity.
