Mini Vinnies

The Society of St. Vincent de Paul is a Christian organisation dedicated to tackling poverty and disadvantage, both worldwide and in local communities.

In an effort to reach out to young people, the SVP have established a new branch of their organisation called ‘Mini Vinnies’.  Members are encouraged to ‘Think, see and do’, putting the needs of other people before their own.

At St Philip’s we have an amazing group of children who give their time to live out the Gospel Values in, and out of school.
