Bishop Robert Byrne recently called in to say thank you to the headteacher, head boy and girl and members of the school parliament at Holy Trinity Catholic School, Small Heath, Birmingham.

The school kindly allowed members of the Redditch SVP to use its kitchen once more for the group to prepare the food for the Christmas party for Birmingham's homeless last Christmas.

Bishop Robert also visited the Minnie Vinnies of St Bede's School, Redditch, and members of the Parish St Vincent de Paul Society to thank them for the support they make every other week.

The group make 200 sandwiches for each of the soup kitchens the Parish SVP run in Birmingham.

A special thank you to Chaplain Sam Downes and Headteacher Lloyd Roberts for their continued support!

The children and staff at Saint Anne's Catholic Primary in Birmingham also had the chance to meet with Bishop Robert.

The school community is a great supporter of the SVP, along with nearby Tabor House, the city's only permanent night shelter.
