On Friday 18 March, a determined gang of huggers armed with ‘free hugs’ signs and smiles arrived on Carnaby Street.
Their mission: to give out as many free hugs as possible to passers by. Many people were cynical at first, wondering what the catch was, but those who went for a hug all left smiling. Given all the disasters, wars, and cuts going on at the moment, it was great to be involved in a small event designed simply to cheer people up. And even though I was supposed to be on photography duty, I was even ambush-hugged by a passer-by!
