The Mini Vinnies are quite literally mini St. Vincent de Paul’s. St Vincent de Paul was a French Catholic priest who dedicated himself to serving the poor and those in need.
Mini Vinnies meet to ‘See, think, do.’ We think of ways we can help make a difference in our local community.
The Mini Vinnies got in touch with Chichester District Foodbank and did a weekly collection during Lockdown. The Foodbank emailed to say that they had never picked up such a big collection from one venue and were delighted. The collections helped make food packages for those in need during a really tough year. We will continue the good work as we were given a permanent basket which is in the School Reception.
The Mini Vinnies are raising money for the Infants new play area and have just organised an exciting new project they have called ‘Change for Change.’
