Pumpkin Heroes was created by World Vision in 2017. Previously Carve a Heart encouraged people across the UK to carve a heart in their pumpkin to turn it into a lantern of hope. This year our hero Patch the Pumpkin is all about heart too - helping children in the UK to have a hope-filled Halloween discovering how they can help and care for others.
