The Sport Relief Team Honk Blogger Relay is a person to person relay from Lands End to John O’Groats. It’s a route of nearly 3,000 miles involving nearly 200 bloggers, their family and friends.
The Fleet leg took place on Thursday 6th February.
This provided the perfect opportunity to make funny faces,
experiment with new looks
and shout “H-O-N-K” down a bollard!
At Farnborough Main we walked and scooted a mile to Farnborough North where we caught a train to Crowthorne. Passers by pretended they couldn’t see us!
In Crowthorne we met birthday boy @andywebbdj and his wife @missuswebb who was in a wheelchair for the day due to a recent diagnosis of Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia. Their daughter @Katiielou_xo also came dressed as a unicorn.
Having stopped off for essential supplies we embarked on the four mile walk to Wokingham.
It rained a lot but we remained in good spirits. We waved at passing traffic and cheered when we were honked. We had a good sing-a-long too thanks to the brilliant music system Andy and Sarah brought with them.
In Wokingham we were treated to delicious warm bacon rolls, lovingly prepared for us by Suzanne from @3childrenandit. She was part of the group cycling to Reading which also included @gourmetmum, @BelindaAlbasini and @Owen2306.
After the bacon rolls, we all walked ¼ mile to Luckley House school. With Chariots of Fire playing, we arrived to the most amazing welcome and a sea of Team Honk banners.
Afterwards the baton, aptly named Mr B, was passed to the cycling team by @MummyBarrow.
They then embarked on their nine mile journey to Reading. We drove to there to meet them and they beat us! Having handed over the baton in Reading, the cycling team headed back to Wokingham and we grabbed a late lunch before heading homeward. It was an incredible day spent with an inspirational bunch of people.
To date Team Honk has raised a staggering £18,690 for Sport Relief – £1,165 of which is from the Fleet leg.
