Mini Vinnies are the smaller representatives of the St Vincent De Paul society. They are part of a worldwide organisation and do good for others. So far we have raised money for Marie Curie, CAFOD, Children in Crossfire, St Cuthbert's Care and delivered Christmas cards to the elderly in the Parish.

Lots of our children want to become a Mini-Vinnie, which is fantastic but to make it fair we put the names in a hat and pick 4 out from year 2, 3 & 4!
Our Mini-Vinnies for 2017-2018 are;
Year 2 - Evie, Riley, Ryan & Dylan
Year 3 - Lola, Leo, Clara & Mabel
Year 4 - Macey, Hubert, Edvinas & Enrico
We collected new pairs of socks and underwear to donate to the Salvation army in Berwick.
Mini Vinnies and some of class 3 attended a porridge breakfast before school at our parish centre, to raise money for Mary's meals.
CAFOD 2017 LENT FAST DAY
Mini Vinnies organised a cake sale to raise funds for CAFOD's Lent campaign, 'Turn little fish into big fish' by making and decorating cakes with a fishy design!
Mini Vinnies have again asked for donations to the Berwick food bank and were delighted with the response from all of our families! Julian from the food bank told us how they sort out the food and toiletries so that people get what they need.
We invited parishioners in for an end of school year tea party and shared all we had done over the year!
