The Wonderful Steph, the Great North Run and Raising Funds for Bluebell Wood
There’s nothing we love more than hearing from recipients of our Hug Donations. You might have seen our recent post on Instagram about Matthew, who was sent a much-deserved hug through our partnership with Bluebell Wood. We are really proud to get to hear about people as brilliant as Matthew.

Hug Donations at London Friend Finder Prom 2018
Yesterday I popped across to the very special place that is Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice. As part of our donation scheme, we regularly donate personalised hug-in-a-box gifts through our four charity partners. One of those partners is Bluebell Wood, a beautiful place which supports children with life shortening conditions and their families. Every month our wonderful Hug Donation Assistant Georgina designs 10 personalised hugs for children and families of Bluebell Wood.
It was really lovely to have the opportunity to catch up on how it’s all been working out. It was amazing to hear how well received the hugs have been and extra special to speak to one lovely mum personally.
Last week, was a special one and I'm excited to be sat with a cuppa ready to talk about an incredible event Charlotte, Georgina and I were able to attend on Wednesday.
Through our 1:50 donation scheme, for every 50 gifts we sell we donate one personalised hug in a box to someone affected by a life-limiting illness.
