Before the Christmas break our Mini Vinnies designed and made a variety of Christmas cards which were delivered to the housebound and elderly within our local parish. We received a huge amount of thanks and they really brightened up Christmas to know the children had thought of them. Well done everyone!
St Cuthbert’s Care Assembly
Our Mini Vinnies had a visit from St Cuthbert’s Care to talk about the work they do through donations and fundraising. It was a very interesting meeting and the Mini Vinnies are very keen to support the charity. We have planned a morning at a local nursing home to meet the residents and the choir will sing for them.
Following on from our assembly by St Cuthbert’s Care we have collected in this years crosses and the Mini Vinnies are helping to count the money. We have raised £150! Thank you for your support.
