WORSHIPPERS in Portsmouth are helping people celebrate Christmas through the use of cuddly toys.
Twelve knitted sheep made by members of St Cuthbert’s Church, in Lichfield Road, Copnor, have been placed in shops and the Alderman Lacey Library in Tangier Road, Copnor, Portsmouth, for families to discover.
To take part people need to pick up a trail leaflet first from either the church or the library, which tells them the names of the toys and where they can be found.
The fun game is also part of the church’s teaching of Saint Cuthbert, who was a shepherd during his lifetime.
He became one of the most important medieval saints of England.
People have until Friday, December 14 to take part.
Once everyone has completed a form to say they have found all the sheep they will be entered into a prize draw.
The lucky winner will get two nativity story books, which have been donated by The Acorn and the Vine Christian Bookshop in Palmerston Road, Southsea, Portsmouth.
