The fruit of your footsteps- Your efforts will ensure we can provide:

-          Essential winter clothing for children

-          Paying gas and heating bills for families who are unable to cover basic costs

-          Provide essential necessities such as groceries and household maintenance

-          Alleviate families with mounting debts and arrears for those on the verge of having their energy supplies cut off.

-          Shelter families through the harsh Winter by covering their rent

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."
