We paid a visit to The Hugs Foundation in Bodmin on Friday to deliver a cheque from the money raised from our collection tin in the office. At the start of each year we choose a charity and throughout the next 12 months, drivers, staff and visitors drop off their spare change into the tin and their kind generosity this year resulted in a donation of £270.
Helen visited The Hugs Foundation site, met by the friendly staff but also plenty of friendly animals – dogs, horses, chickens, cats, goats and pigs! These animals are sadly often rescued from neglected, abused or poorly kept conditions, they are rehabilitated and rehomed after care from the foundation.
Hugs also provides a diverse range of therapeutic activities for children, young people, adults and the elderly. The animals play a massive part in support for those suffering mental ill health, social exclusion, disadvantages and disabilities.

Burcombe Haulage have also donated to The British Heart Foundation this festive season, as well as the Derriford Hospital Gift Appeal – selecting presents through their Amazon wish list to help the appeal ensure every child in Derriford has a present to open on Christmas Day.
