Thank yous, medals and an incredible surprise!

We have some incredible news, but first things first!

It is amazing how much a medal means when you hit the end of a challenge. Having run in a Sport Relief Games 6 and one Mile – which I can heartily recommend for the atmosphere and family fun – and got a shiny medal, I feel very guilty we didn’t think of medals for all those who took part in #teamhonkrelay – next year maybe we can have proper ones?

In the meantime, we made cut out and keep medals.  All you need is scissors, glue, ribbon and some stiff card to put in the middle.

KIDS, you need to make these for your Mum for Mother’s Day, or for your Dad just because!

Huge thanks to all those who took part in #teamhonkrelay, all those who sponsored, and all those who supported those who took part – practically, emotionally and socially.

We THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

You are incredible -your creativity, stamina and drive has blown us away.

You’ve created #lastingchange in the world. Be proud!

Now for the final surprise…

We have one last lovely surprise, Tiger Feet Party,  the children’s and adults’ party company, always donate to a good cause each year. We are so pleased to announce, that having watched your antics they have come forward with the amazing news that they have chosen to make Sport Relief, via #teamhonkrelay, their focus for donations this year. We are delighted to share that Tiger Feet Party are donating an incredible £4,000, which brings our total over the £30,000 mark we had secretly hoped and dreamed of all along.

LOOK AT THAT TOTAL! Incredible eh? They are @TigerFeetParty on Twitter, do say hello.

Well done you!

Wales never really stopped doing things for Sport Relief, the whole time the relay was going on, they just kept getting more ideas!

At 10.30 on Sunday 23rd March nearly 40 Team Honk fanatics knocked the socks of the 120+ participants of the Sport Relief Mile by wowing them with a Zumba Flash Mob and act as the long distance motivation squad for those at John O’Groats (you know like the Haka War Dance in rugby…) Debbie and family also did the Sainsburys’ Sport Relief Games Official Mile!

BUY SOAP! Your slice of #lastingchange


Meet Claudia, she went from making 20 litres of soap a week  to 3000 after receiving business training funded by Sport Relief.

She now employs two others and trains many more. Trade is the key to the END of poverty, Africa needs to regain just a small percentage of export to be independent of aid. When I spoke to Richard Curtis at Number 10, we talked about goals for Sport Relief, he wants to see an end to world poverty by 2030. Wouldn’t that be incredible?

When we met Claudia, the plan was to buy some soap to get  a handful of bloggers to ‘review’ to share the word about #lastingchange. But while we were in Africa so many people did just that. So instead we thought sharing this soap with as many people as possible, in return for a donation to Sport Relief, would be a way to share #lastingchange and to keep the cycle going….
