This is International Hug Week. There are organised events around the UK and yesterday I went to Callendar Park in Falkirk where Random Huggers from Glasgow were giving loads of hugs to willing members of the public.
It was started by Debra Brown in Burnley Lancashire last year when Debra and some friends offered free hugs to shoppers in the town centre. She calls her coaching company Global Hugs.
A hug is a simple and effective way of connecting with people some of whom haven’t experienced one for a long time.
It has been set up to spread a bit of unconditional love around the world.
