Team Honk Sport Relief Relay - Bournemouth Leg #TeamHonk





I am very honoured this year of being a albeit very small part of Team Honk.

Last year an incredible amount of almost 10,000 pounds were raised by Annie at Mammasaurus, Tanya at MummyBarrow and Penny from Alexander Residence who collectively started Team Honk and went to Ghana as part of Comic Relief.

It literally caused Twitter and Facebook to explode, well not quite but it did raise a huge amount of support via the blogging world and Social Media.

This year I am a part of the very first Team Honk Sport Relief Blogger Relay - an incredible journey from Land's End to John O'groats, 3000 miles and its taking over 200 bloggers to make it happen!

The route can me made in anyway as long as it fun and keeps the baton going on it's incredible way to the £20,000 target we are hoping to reach!

Team Honk kicked off their challenge on Sunday 12th January at Lands End, and the relay will see 38 teams pass the baton in a variety of fun and creative ways, finishing in John O Groats on Sunday 23rd March. By the end of the race over 200 participants are expected to have taken part and signed special ribbons on the Olympic themed baton."

Tomorrow is the start of the Bournemouth leg and after picking up the baton on Tuesday from Victoria who had brought it through from the Somerset group; Sonya Cisco from The Ramblings of a Formerly Rock'n'Roll Mum will be joined by yours truly and in a funky Rock n Roll way - we shall be delivering it to My Two Mums at Blandford Tesco for 1pm, where it will be scooted in onsies at lightening speed through the town around Badbury Rings and into Wimborne to join Joanne From Charliemoos  Joanne will take over using her bike!

On Thursday,  Joanne and Kara from ChelseaMamma will enter Bournemouth and paint the town RED of course by using  boat, land train and scooter! 

Friday sees the baton heading to Hythe in the outskirts of Southampton to meet with Annie from Mammasaurus ready for the next leg of the relay to start the following day.

Sonya said: “We want the people of Dorset to support us by cheering us on, sponsoring us and helping us to raise as much money as possible for Sport Relief.” I of course completely second everything in that quote!


We will be leaving from the Co-Op car park at 12.30 so if you would like to wave us off and/or chuck money at us we would love to see you!
