Afternoon of friendship and fun

A Paisley primary school came together for an afternoon of friendship and fun, as they joined members of the local community for a special afternoon tea.

The Mini Vinnies at St Fergus’ Primary School welcomed local pensioners on Wednesday March 28 for afternoon tea and entertainment. Helped by teacher Michelle Winters, the kind-hearted youngsters supplied delicious sandwiches, cakes, teas and coffees for their guests. They also hosted a variety show with song, music, dance, stand-up and acrobatics before a game of bingo.

“It was a great success and everybody had a great time,” the school said. “Some of our pupils entertained our visitors with singing, dancing, tin whistle, jokes and even some backflips. We ended our afternoon with a game of bingo and our visitors told us they can’t wait to come back.”

St Fergus is one of many Mini Vinnies group across the country: pupils that are part of the SSVP family who put their Faith in action to carry out good works.
