This year has been quite a change for the Mini Vinnies. Unfortunately we are not able to meet as a group due to restrictions. This has not stopped us from using our skills and talents to help people in our community.
For our first task, we were asked to write a letter to people in our parish who are in isolation and may be lonely at this time. We thought about how we could let them know that of the children at St Brigid's were thinking of them and praying for them during these difficult times. The letters were distributed by the SVP Parish group to parishioners. We were delighted to receive a response from a parishioner who was so grateful to read our lovely letters.
The SVP Parish group asked us to help them at Christmas time to make some cards for the homeless people in our city. Our school helped the parish to collect items which were handed out to people in need. We made Christmas cards to accompany these packs passing on our best wishes to people this Christmas. We made so many cards that we had lots leftover which we left in the parish for parishioners to give out to people who may be spending Christmas time alone.
The Mini Vinnies gathered together to write some ‘Postcards of Happiness’ to send to the people at Beeches Care Home in Northfield. We hope that when they receive them it will put a smile on their face. Thank you to Abel’s Father who donated the postcards which he bought from the Holy Land.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
