An Update on the Blogger Relay


Happy New Year lovely people! Can you believe that the start is less than two weeks away now and TeamHonkHQ is in full blown panic mode. Which means we have come up with some compromises…

We have made the decision to allow motorised transport. We didn’t want to originally but having talked about it and looked at the logistics of ending ten miles from your car / school runs / weather / ending one day and having to go back to meet somebody the next day it all got a bit much.

So you may travel however you like. BUT in the spirit of fund raising we dont want it to be easy so if you can still do it without, that is going to be something we really shout about and that will probably raise the most funds, which is, after all what this is all about. So can you do it in your pyjamas? With pants on your head? In a onesie? And stop for petrol etc?

We are having a banner like Marathon runners have with “Team Honk for Comic Relief” type thing on it that we will be able to email to you for printing at home. This can then be pinned to your outfit or stuck in your car windows. We are also hoping to have a “HONK for Team Honk and Text HONK to xxxx to donate £5″. And talking of fund raising, this will all be done via Comic Relief. They will create their own version of Just Giving and we will have a Team Honk Team Page. From there you can then create a Team Member page of your own that you can then promote to all your friends and family. Your own total will then form part of the team total. These go live on about 8th Jan so we will be back with more information when it is live.

So this is it – a last call for bloggers and their friends and family to get involved – we have heard some of your exciting plans already, and will be adding a sticky post to this blog in the next couple of days which will list the areas, dates, who’s joining in and what they are doing and that post will be updated as and when people let us know their wonderful plans!

    Will be emailing you tonight regarding my bit of Wales. I just need to know who I’m passing to in Gloucs, because the 9th is easiest for me to get it there.

    P.s. My local school has said yes to getting involved! :-)
