Carve A Heart – A Night of Hope


31st October 2016


As you prepare for a night of ghoulishness this Halloween, spare a thought for children around the world who live in fear every single night of the year, not just for one night in October. It may be through poverty, abuse, hunger, war or forced marriage.

Most of the children we know don’t really have anything to worry about but what if it was a different story? What if you lived in a country where all around you children lived in fear?

Support World Vision’s campaign & carve a heart design in your hollowed out pumpkin before lighting a tea light & placing in the window to show you care (make sure the curtains are well away from it). To help raise money, text HEART to 70060 to donate £5.

Hold a Carve A Heart party & invite friends round to join you. Put nibbles out on the table for people to help themselves to as they carve out their pumpkins & make a big pot of Pumpkin Soup to eat afterwards. Use all the hollowed out pumpkin flesh to make the soup & serve with fresh crusty bread & grated cheese. Follow with Chocolate Pots & Heart Biscuits.
