Christmas carol challenge

The Twelve Days of Christmas is one of the nation’s favourite carols, so what better way to raise awareness of the amount of food that is wasted every Christmas than to sing it loud.

The money we waste on food that ends up at the bottom of the bin could be donated to families in South Sudan and Burkina Faso who don't have enough to eat.

We challenge you and your church to record your own version of the Oh What a Waste Christmas Carol.
