Supporting HHUGS

Every pound raised in taking part in this challenge will allow us to support some of the most isolated families in the UK, vulnerable women, children and the elderly, who have been ostracised and stigmatised by society. HHUGS is the only registered charity supporting 185 families – over 400 individuals – affected by the arrest of a loved one.

With the past Ramadhan not generating the level of funds anticipated,  we now find ourselves with only 4 months non zakah-funds remaining. Without further assistance, we won't be able to extend the current provision to all who need our help. Without your support, we may cease to operate.

By taking part in the Zip World Velocity Challenge, you can help HHUGS help families who have no one else to turn to, and allow us to continue and expand our unique services to the increasing number of families impacted by detention.
