In September, Dawn Nicholas from The Hugs Foundation joined us for a delicious meal at Bodmin Herb Nursery following which she gave a very enlightening talk about the foundation which is based here in Bodmin.

Dawn told us that Hugs is a charitable organisation that rescues, rehabilitates and rehomes unwanted and neglected horses and ponies, as well as giving a home to many other farm and domestic animals. Dude is one of the ponies who regularly visits care homes and brings pleasure to the residents.

Hugs also provide an intervention/support to children and young people in need of help to improve their physical and mental well-being, including Nature walks, Animal Interactions, Arts and Crafts for example, it is also open during school holidays and it holds open days for the general public, all visits must be by arrangement only.


Have a look at the website for The Hugs Foundation: www.hugsfoundation.org.uk


The President's chosen charities for this Inner Wheel year are:
HUGS Foundation in Bodmin, rescuing abused horses and providing services for those with mental health issues.

Cornwall Coast Watch, safeguarding the lives of people by watching over vulnerable craft and everyday coastal activity.
