Who are the Mini Vinnies?
The Mini Vinnies are quite literally mini St. Vincent de Paul’s.
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. It is a Catholic organisation that inspires people to live according to the Gospel and teaches love,respect, kindness, generosity and understanding in order to help the most vulnerable and encourage equality among our brothers and sisters. Mini Vinnies members are there to volunteer and assist by TURNING CONCERN INTO ACTION!

Why would you like to join our Mini Vinnies group?
Unfortunately this year we have not been able to have our regular Mini Vinnie meetings to organise our termly projects but our MV’s have not let this affect their ability to work from home throughout this lockdown period. Keep up the hard work and continue to practice the MV pledge and lets all say our prayer together.
What can we do at home?
Utilise the resources on the Mini Vinnie website, you do not have to be a member to access it, there are many activities to do while you are at home.
Here are some activities i have selected that you can do at home, I have attached a link to each activity that your parents can print out.
A huge thank you to our previous Year 6 Mini Vinnies who have now moved on to high school. Anjali, Luliyana, Holly and Johmie, we wish you all the luck and hope you continue on with the Mini Vinnies pledge and prayers in your hearts. May God bless you and light your path, throughout the next journey in your lives.

Turning Lives Around
Minnie Vinnies lead a project and with help from all our parents and children were able to create 34 gift bags filled with essentials for clients in the Leeds area this Christmas!
An amazing effort to all those who contributed and a whopping congratulations to Year 3 who collected 121 items and won themselves treats and an extra playtime!
Thank you to Rosemary Clayton who took time out to give Minnie Vinnies a talk about her charity work and take our gift bags back to the centre to distribute!
