Pumpkin Heroes is new for 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 new mega-star Patch the Pumpkin is all about heart too – helping children in the UK to have a hope-filled Halloween discovering how they can share and care for others.
