Climbing Snowdon for Comic Relief #TeamHonkSnowdon
Another blip in my blogging. Mainly due to the lack of internet at home but there have been other reasons like starting driving lessons and with my son recently starting nursery there has naturally been illness after illness plaguing the household.
I’ve also been doing good things with my time. I have even joined a gym. You know, one of those hurrendous places where you go in feeling great and come out looking like a sweaty salmon that’s just been given it’s last rights (or what I’d imagine that to look like… strange things go on in my head). The reason for my sudden love for Spin classes (I lie), treadmills and aerobics with letters (otherwise known as Bowka) is *drum roll* I am climbing Snowdon on Saturday.
I’ve always wanted to climb a mountain just to feel that sense of achievement when I hopefully reach the top and after following what #TeamHonk have done for Comic Relief, it inspired me to do my bit.
As soon as Annie from mammasaurus blog announced that they were looking to recruit people to climb Snowdon I was all over it. So the past few weeks I have been pumping iron, cleaning up sick and begging for sponsors. If that’s not multi-tasking, I don’t know what is!! But it’s all for a massively great cause and I feel privileged to be be a part of #TeamHonkSnowdon.
Whilst Annie, Penny and Tanya (the TeamHonk mamma’s) were in Ghana last month they sent me a digital postcard in celebration of Comic Relief’s #goodwork. As I’ve not had chance to blog since, I thought now would be a great opportunity to share them:
“Later we visit school in the Agbogbloshie slum district. Having walked through the winding and litter strewn paths of the slum, the ordered environment of the school comes as a surprise. I talk to Elizabeth who teaches a group of six year olds, in a large hall on the ground floor of the school alongside four other classes.
As a teacher I can’t believe how Elizabeth is so enthusiastic about the prospect of teaching 40 children without a teaching assistant and with very limited resources. Here too we are greeted by song. ‘Did you like it?’ she asks. I give the children the thumbs up and they smile. Meanwhile Davina records an appeal video in an upstairs classroom. “
For the past 25 years the money raised through Red Nose Day has been changing the lives of the poorest and most disadvantaged people in the UK and Africa. Let’s Keep Up the Good Work. Find out how at rednoseday.com. For other digital postcards please do join up and check out the linky on www.teamhonk.org
It’s all lovely jubbly that I’m climbing a mountain yadda yadda but we are doing it for a reason… to raise some money. So now… my begging hat is being passed around to help Comic Relief continue their #goodwork. I would love you to sponsor me/us… even the smallest of donations make a huge difference and I promise every penny is massively appreciated. Did I mention we are climbing up there with knickers over our sexy waterproof trousers? Surely that in itself is worth a fiver?
