Not your usual Christmas party

Don’t spend a thing on your party. Donate it.

This winter, food banks are expecting to give out an emergency food parcel every 9 seconds. But together we can change it.

Take part in Not Your Christmas Party – the virtual get together, invite friends and colleagues and donate the money you would normally spend to help build a Hunger Free Future.
