Streets of Light is a Sheffield-born initiative that seeks to bring change and transformation to neighbourhoods and communities by creating window displays that convey a message of Light, Love and Hope as an alternative to Halloween. For one week at the end of October, people create a window display in their home, place of work, school, church etc. Could you, your school or church get involved this year?
