What on earth is Team Honk you say and what on earth is Honkopoly??
Team Honk is an amazing group of bloggers Annie (Mammasaurus), Tanya (Mummy Barrow) and Penny (The Alexander Residence) who last year, with Comic Relief, went to Ghana , and sent home lots of postcards raising awareness of what was happening out there, and what Comic Relief are doing in Ghana, working with and supporting people. They then took a team of of bloggers up Snowdonia, and raised nearly £10,000, and met Russell Brand.
This year, for Sports Relief they are doing something pretty spectacular, to raise more money. Much brainstorming and mind melding has taken place, and as a result, #TeamHonk came up with the idea of traversing the lenght and breadth of the UK, and a large group of bloggers (running, walking, riding bikes, pushing pushchairs, dressed up, dressed down, and everything in between) carrying #TeamHonk baton from Lands End to John O’Groats!!
Honkopoly is the London leg of Team Honk: a group of
bloggers who are coming together in a relay from Land’s End to John
O’Groats in aid of Sport Relief: 3,000 miles, 10 weeks, 250 bloggers.
They are taking the baton on a Monopoly-themed tour of the capital.
Honkopoly will hit every colour of the Monopoly board on foot, on
scooters, on bikes and on London transport.The #TeamHonkRelay is in full swing having started on the 12th January.
How can you help?
Did you know you’re never more that 30 miles from a project supported by Comic Relief! Their #GoodWork knows no boundaries providing clean water, food, health support, shelter and basic living needs in the world’s poorest countries and at home helping people deal with grief, breaking down the mental heath taboo providing sports equipment for disabled children and so, so much more.
