Last week there was a huge guessing game going on among blogging types over on Twitter – you see Annie, Tanya and Penny (from Mammasaurus, Alexander Residence and MummyBarrow) were waiting with bated breath to announce some very exciting news!
They had been invited to travel to Ghana with Comic Relief this week to see how the money we’ve all been donating for the last 25 years has been used in a number of different projects from schools to bakeries. They were joined by celebrities – Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross. What an amazing trip of a lifetime!
Luckily these lovely women have been sharing their experiences with us and sending personalised virtual postcards from their trip. Mine arrived today, and I have to admit I welled up a bit when I opened it especially to see the smiling eyes of a little boy shining out of my computer. It made me hug my little boy, Elliot, ever so slightly tighter this evening.
Well done TeamHonk! Let’s hear it for 25 years of Comic Relief!
Within minutes of arriving at the Virtuous Women’s Bakery this little fellow popped his head over the nursery wall into the courtyard. He’s the very first child I photographed, so we were both a bit shy. When we arrived the children were singing and dancing. Davina joined in for a dance while this little fellow said hello to us over the wall.
The bakery gives women the opportunity of financial independence and having the nursery on site means they can work.
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
