I am super happy to say that i am taking part in the blogger to blogger relay traveling all the way from Land’s End to John O Groats in aid of Sport Relief!
If you have not heard about it already, where have you been?! Over 200 bloggers will be pushing buggies, roller blading, boating, biking, scooting, rafting, hiking, pogoing and mountain climbing nearly 3,000 miles over 6 weeks! Phew.
The relay started yesterday with Story of Mum kicking off for #TeamHonkCornwall and will reach #TeamHonkBrighton on Monday the 20th January. Our gang comprises of Mrs Chic from Bare Chic, Anya from Older Single Mum, Chelle from Social Sparkle, Sophie from Cider with Sophie, Maddie from Gammon and Chips and Sarah from a field somewhere. A fabulous bunch indeed!
I will be doing a 2 mile buggy push in Shoreham at around 9.30 am with the lovely Maddie which may sound like a breeze but have you met my boys?! They are not ones for, um sitting, so i shall be coming armed with lollypops and leaving with the intention on having a stiff G&T later that evening (oh damn you Dry January, foiled again).
The aim is to raise £20,000 and If you would like to support the cause (PLEASE DO!) you can donate here. Any amount would help, no matter how small and you can also Text: HONK to 70005 and donate £5.
Wish us luck! :)

Oh well done you! :) I feel a little bit guilty about not taking part when Fiona of Coombe Mill asked me. I don’t drive you see & the husband is too busy to drive me. I can’t run, cycle because of my ankle that’s taking a bit longer to heal. I can walk but after awhile, I sort of wobble. Haha. Must be old age! Hats off to you guys though :)
It is going be fabulous. Fingers crossed it doesnt rain on you.
Thanks so much for getting involved.
Go the Brighton team! I’m beginning to dread snow for the London leg on the 5th Feb. Were you on the bit where my cousin’s school came out to cheer your team on? It’s a Shoreham school, but I can’t remember the name…
YES i was!! how funny! F thought he was a race car driving past with everyone cheering him on ;))
Small old world. How fab for F :-)
Love how there’s so many different ways people have got involved. Well done on your part.
