Christmas in the UK

This is our guide to free Christmas activities.

Local churches often offer free or cheap services including Christmas carols.

Food sharing apps

Try OLIO app on iPhone or Android. It connects neighbours with each other and with local businesses so surplus food can be shared, not thrown away. This could be food nearing its sell-by date in local stores, spare home-grown vegetables, bread from your baker, or the groceries in your fridge when you go away.

Explore Waste Not program from Lidl: get a box of fruits and vegetables for £1.50 and help reduce food waste.

Too Good to Go is another app that helps reducing food waste. The Too Good To Go app lets customers buy and collect Magic Bags of this food - at a great price - directly from businesses.
