The Hand Of Friendship Campaign

Hand Of Friendship


The “Friend” launched its Hand Of Friendship campaign in 2016, aiming to make a real difference to the lives of the millions of people. To date, our readers have raised thousands of pounds for some very worthy causes.

Learn more about our campaign partners below.


This year, “The People’s Friend” has linked up with the Book Bus. The charity delivers books and works with teachers and volunteers to help get more children reading in Malawi, Zambia and Ecuador. Over the last ten years, its fleet of five buses has travelled 250,000 miles, and given books to more than 100,000 children.
