This year we are doing something different to help spread joy, colour and hope throughout the villages!
We are sending out Mary, Joseph, and the Donkey as templates to be coloured in – using crayons, paint or collage material and then cut out. Then we are asking you to place them in a front window for everyone to see. Hopefully, we will be able to see a growing number of houses displaying Mary, Joseph, and the donkey as if we see them travelling around the village.
