It’s hard to think that just 6 weeks ago the #secretthing was revealed and Tanya, Penny and I set off to Ghana with Comic Relief, Davina and Jonathon. Since then it’s been all go with lots of people supporting, writing blog posts and fundraising. Tonight TeamHonk will be reunited once more, the first time we have seen each other since the trip, at the BBC to be in the Comic Relief audience. No nobody panic, and by ‘nobody’ I actually mean ‘me’ but we’ll be in the production audience which means that when the presenters go to speak to some fundraising people in the audience that there’s a chance that we may get spoken to briefly. What I am trying to say is don’t freak out if you see our cheesy faces beaming away at you through your tv sets tonight… and yes – of course we’ll be wearing the pants over our trousers because in Teamhonk that’s indeed how we roll. Did I mention that for every pair of ‘the pants’ sold before midnight tonight Who Made Your Pants are going to donate £5 to Comic Relief? (check them out here)
We’ve beaten the £8,000 mark in our the extended and combined team fundraising but it’s not over till the fat lady gets all her hair cut off. I am fluctuating between the fear and the sheer joy and pride of how not only the blogging community but friends, family and random people from Twitter have come together to help us support Red Nose Day (and at the same time making this one of the most unforgettable experiences of our lives). Here’s a look back at the past 6 weeks in photos….
