7 Days left: Free Hugs World Record in Distance. London – Edinburgh 2018.

I made it my mission in life to teach people how they can make the world around them a little friendlier, safer, and happier by using positive projects and activities to target societal issues, and so I seem to have talked myself into something a bit out there again.. Next Saturday, on the 7th July I begin the over 900 kilometre walk from London to Edinburgh, 20-30 km/day, carrying a fabulous free hugs flag created by Irene and creating a new world record for the World’s Longest Free Hugs Event in Terms of Distance to promote our platform focallocal.org re-launching

The Independent writes about Andy, Focallocal, and our Homelessness Big Resource Map

We hit the National news again as The Independent report on one of our projects. Ok, they got some details wrong as i’m told time for research was very limited, but its a big step in the right direction. Oh, and the writer enjoyed what we do so much she’s joined us, Welcome Elsa. If we’re really lucky, and nice, she might spread a few of her magically talented words here one day :0)
