Young Vinnies at St Joseph’s Primary School, Hastings, held an in-school Easter Raffle to raise funds for Caritas Aotearoa, in support of their work for the children of Ukraine. The Vinnies donated the chocolate – enough for five large Easter baskets – and sold tickets for 50c each. The students responded really well and exceeded expectations by raising $725.10 – an outstanding effort for 216 students. Fr Trung Nguyen, of the Catholic Parish of Hastings, drew the winners’ tickets and is pictured presenting one of the Easter baskets to Year 1 student, Vincent.
