Hear from a Big Hug Fundraiser

"With Big Hug, it's amazing to see just how far even the smallest amount of money goes. This is probably why they do their utmost to keep their admin cost as low as possible and ensure each pound is so carefully allocated. It is probably the most fulfilling feeling to know you are part of the reason that a child now has a future, now has a chance of an education, a family or sometimes even just a roof over their head.

Big Hug's goals are simple but life changing. The dreams are big but focused. The love is clear and the hope is unstoppable... The decision to donate and fundraise for this charity was pretty simple."
