About Us

The Gis A Hug Foundation is a charity set up by the families of Neil McFerran and Aaron Davidson, who tragically lost their lives to carbon monoxide poisoning in Castlerock on 3rd August 2010.

Our name originated from Neil’s phrase of ‘Gis a hug!’ which he would say whenever he saw you … just a little reminder of how wonderful the boys were and how important it is to cherish the ones you love.
