What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


HUG in a Bag started in Sunderland in October 2006 by three women who met, laughed, cried and supported each other during their treatment for breast cancer.

Each of the three coped in their own way but found that sharing their thoughts, anxieties and concerns was extremely helpful.

They also gave each other lots of hugs in times of fear, sadness and joy!


The charity has since moved to Durham and Darlington hospitals.
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 Hospital. We know from out own experiences that you can feel very alone and vulnerable at this time, and we want to show our understanding and support.


Many people have given their practical, financial and emotional support to this venture and have enthusiastically welcomed the idea! Donations gratefully received and the funds raised enable us to provide a bagful of hugs! After all, everyone likes a hug!

This year we have had a selection new Trustees and Board members in 2019 with some fresh fundraising ideas and new ways of raising our profile.

Keep checking back for events we will be hosting and attending.
