Another incredible week in which we smashed £7000, thank you so much to all who have donated so far, you are going to make a huge difference.
Faded Seaside Mamma named the baton and won the very cool Haraka trainers from Hi-Tec UK. She said – ‘I think given that the baton is ACTUALLY doing the full relay, it should be awarded the respect it deserves, so would like to suggest Mr B’ The judges agreed – a baton this well travelled, with a penchant for cocktails, speedboats and adventure, needed a name that commanded respect. So respect to Mr B!
Meanwhile…Karen from Tales of Twin Mum continued the journey towards Worthing. Two local authors @zellacompton and @djkirkby walked three legged and caught a ferry and Dee ran, as did Jim, John, and Richard, rounding off with the final drive into Worthing. A collection at B and Q resulted in a remarkable extra £500 of sponsorship.
We launched the Welsh baton! Rebecca from Mum of Three Boys travelled 22.2 miles from Cardigan to Haverfordwest by car. At Scolton Manor, Rebecca passed the baton to Claire from Diary of the Evans-Crittens . Together they ran the Scolton Manor Dragon’s Run Mini Beasts Exercise Trail dressed in fancydress . Claire then drove 7 miles to Milford Haven with the baton.
Whilst our batons travel up the country to Scotland, Sport Relief were already there, launching 2014 in spectacular style. Our very own HONKER Ellen Arnison was invited along as a local blogger, to take part in all the fun and merriment and has sent this. Thanks Ellen, what a great pic of Matt Baker and Alex Jones!!
