We Are Asking For Your Help…

Big Group Hug wants to ensure all our kids are warm this winter by including pyjamas, singlets, socks & underwear in all our donated packs of clothing.

The ‘Pj’s, singlets, socks & jocks make for warm & happy kids & tots’ campaign asks families to provide new Pj’s, singlets, socks and underwear for children aged 2 to 16 years old. These items will be distributed to families within our community as requested.


I’d like to help


Donate new or pre-loved items (for newborn to young-teenager (size 14)) or make a financial contribution to support our work.
