Hugs for free in Garrucha

Facebook: Abrazos Gratis del Centro de Día Garrucha

THERE was no price tag on the hugs given out at Garrucha’s weekly open air market. They came free of charge, courtesy of the local day centre’s employees and users and were a token of appreciation for the people of Garrucha and visitors to the town and its beaches.

“Contact and hugs are not only pleasant in themselves but a necessity, too,” the day centre employees explained, adding:“Hugs make us feel good, they help us to forget loneliness, overcome fear and reduce tension. That’s why we’re so happy to be doing this.”
