It’s can’t be that hard to walk from here to Derby, right? – me, nervously
So, I’ve mentioned before that I like to walk but I’ve never walked from one city to another. On Feb 26th, all that will change.
Sport Relief is back 21-23 March 2014 and calling on the nation to get active, have fun and raise funds to change the lives of the people who need it most. Since 2002, Sport Relief has raised over £195million. The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help people living incredibly tough lives, both at home in the UK and across the world.
As part of all this, 200 bloggers have come together under the banner Team Honk to hold a relay covering approximately 3,000 miles from Lands End to John O’Goats, with a view to completing the journey inside 6 weeks and raising £20,000 for Sport Relief.
The first team kicked off on Sunday, and now a total of 38 teams will continue pass the baton in a variety of fun and creative ways, finishing in John O Groats on Sunday 23rd March.
The following day, on Feb 26th, Jen Stanbrook, Louise Edwards, Amanda Cottingham and I will collect the baton and walk (yes, WALK) from Nottingham to Derby to hand over to #TeamHonkDerby (which will include support from Penny again, plus gorgeous Nottingham blogger Jaime Oliver.)
And just to make sure no one misses us on our journey, we’ll be the ones shivering in slightly silly Nottingham-inspired outfits along the way – I’ll be Robin Hood (if Robin Hood was a girl and wore thermal tights).
So, you know the drill, I need you to sponsor #TeamHonkNottingham. If you do, I promise not to pester you for any kind of donation until next year. Deal?
Please donate online HERE
or you can text HONK to 70005 and donate £5 to Sport Relief .
In addition the #teamhonk blogger relay, the first ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games is due to take place from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March 2014. The public 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.
