St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School, Retford has a new group called ‘Mini Vinnies’ which is made up of children from Year 5.  The Mini Vinnie group had their commissioning Liturgy on 7 May.  Their aim is to work alongside those vulnerable in school, the parish and the wider community.  Headteacher, Mr Richard Hilton commented, “The Mini Vinnie group is an exciting venture for our children and school.  We will be part of the National and International St Vincent de Paul Society that helps those less fortunate than ourselves.”
