The School Music Department has donated £500 to kick start the Youth St Vincent De Paul Society at St. Augustine’s School.
This money was raised last year through fundraising for the Music trip to Lake Geneva. We have been looking for the right charity to donate this to and thought that this would be perfect. Around 40 pupils from across all year groups have formed this group, inspired by the work of St. Vincent De Paul, a 17th Century priest who dedicated himself to serving the poor, the group aim to be of service to people in the community in whatever small way they can.
They meet every week in school and plan their next event, including fundraising visits to residential homes, socials for the community and prayers for those in need.
This money will go a long way in helping fund the various activities and bring much joy to people in the community!
