in the Green goes out on the streets of South East London or

FOURTH ANNUAL RANDOM HUGGERS DAY ON THE SOUTH BANK
Sunday 6 May
11am-2pm on the South Bank (London Eye to Hungerford Bridge)
Visitors to the South Bank will be offered a free hug this
Sunday. The idea for Random Huggers Day originated when
Mayella Reynolds was listening to LBC one morning in 2003.
Nick Ferrari said: "It seems you can find random terrorists
on the streets - why don't we find random huggers?" Mayella
says: "It really tickled me to think of a group of people
offering hugs in the streets of London. We can all do with a
hug! So I contacted a few friends and we got together to
create Random Huggers Day. It was really that simple."
