About Hug in a Bag
HUG in a Bag is a charity that was started in Sunderland in October 2006 and was opened in Blackpool in 2012. 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. Durham and Blackpool are ran, funded and are now separate charities, we still work closely together.
