HUG in a Bag is a charity that was started in Sunderland in October 2006.
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 Darlington Memorial Hospital.


You can sponsor a bag or donate raffle prizes. You also give your support by coming along to and event or sponsor a person completing a challenge. Check the news and events section, the individual pages for the Local Giving links or get in touch for more information. Each Hug in a Bag contains £80 of products.


You can also support Hug in a Bag by raising money completing a challenge, taking part in an organised event, organise an office cake sale, Running, Jumping, Zip Wiring, Leg Waxing or anything else you may think of.
Or simply by sharing our news and events on social media, putting a poster up in your workplace or putting change in one of our charity boxes.
