Mini Vinnies Update #20

13 Jun 2019

Welcome to this 20th update for the St Bede’s Mini Vinnies group.

Today we have made our sandwiches once again for the soup kitchen in Birmingham City Centre.  We have now begun working collaboratively with the Staff and pupils at St Augustine’s as they have started putting together special treat bags with biscuits and cereal bars.  These will be given out along with the sandwiches we make for the homeless outreach every time we support the SK.

Today we also celebrated a prayerful and joyful Mass of thanksgiving for all our Year 7 and 8 pupils who are currently serving Mini Vinnies here in school.

Also, many thanks to all who have begun to bring in toiletries and bottled water for our brothers and sisters in need.  We are still grateful for donations, however small and in particular men’s toiletries including shaving foam and shower gels. Here is a reminder of the items, which will be most gratefully received by the SVP.

The SVP would be most grateful for any donations of the following items:

  • Small Bottled water or 500/600ml sized bottles
  • Male and female deodorants – sprays and roll-ons
  • Male shower gel and shaving foam
  • Sunscreen/lotion/sunblock/ – cream or sprays
  • Wetwipes/Baby wipes

Donated water, sunscreen/lotion and deodorants can be brought, either to Reception and placed in the red collection box or passed on directly to Miss Downes here in school by Wednesday, 17th July 2019.  May the Lord bless you for your kindness and generosity to those in most need in our locality.

“Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of Mine, you did it for Me.” Jesus.  Matthew 25:40

Thanks so much for all the practical and spiritual support that you provide for the Mini Vinnies to continue their sterling work and service in our local community. Please continue to pray for the group as we keep going in the Lord’s service supporting our brothers and sisters in need.

Please pray for all who faithfully support and run the SVP Soup Kitchen in the City of Birmingham and those who are in most need who come and use this vital outreach service.
