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 3 & 4!
Our current Mini-Vinnies are;
Year 4 - Louisa, Heidi, Liam & Lewis
Year 3 - Lawson, Auriel, Thiago & Kylah
We harvested the carrots from our school vegetable patch and took them to the Northern Soul cafe on West Street.
This cafe is very special it's aim is to avoid food waste and customers can pay what they want for their meal. Millie was delighted to receive the carrots and has invited us back for a soup workshop so that we can experience putting this food to good use!
Rita & Leah are from the Philippines were so happy to receive the chocolate bars we had collected especially when Paul told them they were from our lovely children here in St Cuthbert's!
Thank you to everyone who donated you have helped cheer up others who are away from their children and families for a long time.
We collected new pairs of socks and underwear to donate to the Salvation army in Berwick.
