During Lent, the wonderful Mini Vinnies at Sacred Heart in Byermoor have been busy raising money to support local charities.

The children used the money to buy Easter Eggs and decided to donate them to all the wonderful staff in Leazes Hall Care Home in Burnopfield. Leazes Hall provides physical, social and psychological opportunities which in turn promote resident independence.

Miss Cunningham, Deputy Headteacher, stated, “We are always looking for ways to give back to our local community. I am delighted that our Mini Vinnies know and understand the importance of reaching out and showing gratitude to those make a difference.
