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 Nick Ferrari on LBC 97.3 one morning in November 2003. Nick 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."
