On Friday 10th November Mini Vinnie children from St Joachim’s and St Helen’s slept over at St Helen’s school with staff to raise awareness for World Homeless Awareness Day.
On the evening of the sleep over, the children took part in a beautiful prayer service around an outdoor camp fire. They also had soup and bread for their evening meal before bed time, which was in St Helen’s school hall.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the experience, which reminded them of the issues of homelessness across the world. They were sponsored for the St Vincent De Paul Trust which is a homeless charity. Well done Mini Vinnies!
