On Monday morning a group of local bloggers and myself will be talking part in the Team Honk Relay. Team Honk was set up by 3 fantastic bloggers (Annie, Tanya & Penny) to blog and tweet about last year’s Comic Relief. They ended up raising almost £10,000 by chopping all their hair off (Annie),climbing Snowdon, bike riding (Tanya), cake sales and lots lots more. And this year Team Honk is back! In the name of Sport Relief, around 200 bloggers are going to swim, run, walk and scooter to pass a baton person to person all the way from Land’s End to John O’Groats. As soon as I read about it, I wanted to take part and before I knew it, we were making plans to include a Woburn Safari Park elephant…(yes, really). The Milton Keynes team is made up of myself, Gemma, Sandy, Claire and Missy B. (and I need to say a huge thank you to my amazing friend Caroline who is lending us her “unicorn” for mine and Gemma’s part of the relay).
You can see photos from the relay over at teamhonk.org or take a look at #teamhonkrelay on Instagram and Twitter
But we need your help, and more importantly, your cash. To donate £5 to Sport Relief, text HONK to 70005 or you can visit the Team Honk MK Sport Relief page. WE HAVE *AN ACTUAL ELEPHANT* people! Surely that’s worth a quid?
Want to be involved? The first ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games take place from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March 2014. Anyone can join the fun and games by running, swimming or cycling their way to raising cash at over a thousand venues around the country, including the landmark events at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
As one of the biggest fundraising events, Sport Relief brings the entire nation together to get active raise cash and change lives. The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people both at home in the UK and across the world.
