HUG in a Bag is a charity that was started in Sunderland in October 2006 and later opened in Blackpool in 2013.
Our aim is to give one more hug in the form of a bag containing gifts and information leaflets to every person diagnosed with breast cancer in University Hospital of North Durham and Royal Victoria Hospital Blackpool. We know from out own experiences that you can feel very alone and vulnerable at this time, and we want to show our understanding and support.
Many people have given their practical, financial and emotional support to this venture and have enthusiastically welcomed the idea! Donations gratefully received and the funds raised enable us to provide a bagful of hugs! After all, everyone likes a hug!
