Team Honk began in 2012 with Mummy Barrow, Mammasaurus and The Alexander Residence and after an incredible trip to Ghana to visit projects supported by Sport Relief, last year the team raised almost £10,000 for Sport Relief!
This year the challenge is a three month long relay from Land’s End to John O’Groats involving over 250 bloggers and their friends and family! The Team Honk Relay started on 12th January 2014 and ends on the 23rd March 2014 but tomorrow the Team Honk baton arrives in St Albans on its 3,000 mile trip around the UK!
The baton will be passed in a human chain of 500 school children and adults from Mandeville School to St Peters School with the help of Cheetahs In My Shoes and Mediocre Mum. It will scoot with the Mayor of St Albans, councillor Annie Brewster, Annie QPR and Everyone Else is Normal through the town and then into the hands of Actually Mummy dressed as Buzz Lightyear and onto the local soft play centre DJs Jungle Adventure where BeingMrsC and I (and the little’uns) will race through the streets to St Albans City Station in time to pass the baton on to Steph’s Two Girls to take down to London for #Honkopoly which starts on Wednesday 5th February.
Tomorrow will be a slightly crazy but fun day and we all have our fingers crossed that the master plan comes together! This year Team Honk have been challenged to raise £20,000, so if you can, please sponsor us here, even if you can spare just £1, that is enough to provide a hot meal for a child in the UK living in extreme poverty.
You can get involved too! There are Sainsbury’s Sports Relief Games happening all over the country at the end of March so find a local event in your area and join in the fun. You can also follow the relay on twitter #teamhonkrelay and on Facebook. We would love to hear your messages of support.
