Noel and Sue Radford, from Lancashire, have a whopping 22 children to deal with on a daily basis.

How does the Radford family celebrate Christmas?

Despite having 22 children, the family famously doesn’t claim a single benefit.

Instead, they manage to live entirely off of Noel and Sue’s bakery business.

“We save for it over the year, putting money away in an account. I do supermarket savings stamps for the food shop too,” she said previously.

According to the family, they spend up to £200 on each of their children. So that’s a massive £5,000 to save every year!

Coronavirus woes

Things recently became hard for the family due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The pair had to shut their bakery after testing positive for coronavirus.

“It was impossible to leave it open so we had to close which,” said Sue on the family’s YouTube channel.

“It’s the busiest time of the year, you can’t get any orders out and we don’t have any income coming from the shop, so it’s going to hit quite hard quite honestly,” Sue said.
