Hugs is determined to carry on its mission to help animal and human welfare and well-being and keep everyone in touch with the Charity during these difficult times. Therefore, we are launching ‘Hugs TV’s A Daily Hug’ via Facebook Live.

This involves 1-2 posts a day at approximately 9am and 2pm (depending on what’s happening on the yard) that will go live to keep our stakeholders and much valued supporters engaged and give you something to do and look forward to whilst you are stuck at home.

One post will be with the rescue animals (including their new foal, Primrose!), continuing to tell their stories, show how they are all being cared for and set challenges and fun questions to give you all something to keep you busy e.g. here’s our new baby foal, do you know how long horses are pregnant for?

The second post will be either a challenge or activity that individuals and families can do in your own homes and gardens e.g. a bug hunt, recording what is in the garden and researching to identify what the bugs are and how they benefit the environment.

Hugs hopes that this will help keep people positive and give you some things to do that could perhaps also be helpful with the lack of school and improve social inclusion whilst adhering to the social distancing restrictions. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page, share with your friends and family, get involved and join in the fun!

Our staff are dedicated to our animals, participants in Hugs well-being programmes and our much-valued supporters. We will continue to reach people by whatever means that we can and care for and rehabilitate our rescue horses.

From all at Hugs “Stay safe, be kind to yourselves and one another and always remember, 💚KINDNESS💚DIGNITY💚RESPECT💚.”
