HHUGS ANNUAL WINTER WALK 2018

HALIFAX – Ogden Water Park – Saturday, 24th February 2018, 11am

 

LONDON – Hyde Park – Saturday, 24th February8

Five miles towards warmer homes and hearts this Winter

Calling all brave souls and generous hearts: wrap up warm, defy the wintry chills and don your best walking shoes to take on our 5 mile challenge, Walking in Their Shoes.

Now in its fifth year, the annual HHUGS Winter Walk is back! 2018 sees us return to the heart of central London, Hyde Park, along with the scenic views of Ogden Water Country Park for those in the North of the country. We invite you to wrap up warm, put on your best shoes, and walk 5 miles in aid of some of the UK’s most vulnerable families.

For the past five years, we have come together to brave the winter chill, all in aid of HHUGS families. Through your amazing efforts you have:

  • Provided warm clothing
  • Paid for gas and heating bills for those unable to cover basic costs
  • Sheltered families through the harsh winter by covering their rent
  • Provided essential necessities such as groceries and household maintenance

 

 In Winter, they send us vouchers for clothing and sent us duvets to keep us warm. Allah knows the difference that HHUGS made to my life.”

 

This year, with a record number of arrests, a growing number of affected families and rising poverty in the UK, we want our fifth Annual Winter Walk to be bigger and better than ever! With our current constraints on funding, your efforts on the day are critical to provide vulnerable families with the support they desperately need in this trying winter period. So bring friends and family a long, strap up your walking boots and join us for a 5 mile walk and an enjoyable day out for all the family.

 They helped me with rent payments, without which we would be homeless. They paid for food and winter clothing. I had so much debt when I contacted HHUGS but they helped me pay off my rent arrears, my water bill and my council tax arrears, which lifted a huge burden off my shoulders.”
