Welcome to the Hundreds of Hugs project! Go on, give us a hug!

The 2019 Charity Challenge

This year we will be raising money for SANE by creating hugs. They can be knitted, crocheted or sewn.

  • You can download patterns from the Patterns page.
  • Or pick up a pattern at Wellgreen Lodge or Hobbycraft, Altrincham.
  • Or email elizabeth.swindells@traffordhousingtrust.co.uk

Feel free to decorate and customise your hugs however you like. Yours could be a happy hug, a sad hug, a bear hug or a monster hug. Just use your imagination!
