Nope, I've not been on holiday. Looking out the window at the dreary and monotone world, it would be nice but unfortunately not. I'm also not convinced that Ghana would be a place that people would have at the top of their holiday list, but this weekend three intrepid bloggers (#TeamHonk) set off with the Comic Relief team (including Davina McCall and Jonathan Ross) for a trip to see the good work that has been done as a result of the past twenty five years worth of donations to Red Nose Day.
#TeamHonk have been visiting four projects in Ghana on 4th and 5th February to see for themselves the difference Red Nose Day money has been making. Those projects are: Virtuous Women and Children International, African Outreach, Vaccination Clinic, and Basic Needs UK Trust.
To help raise awareness of the chosen projects, #TeamHonk have been sending 'digital postcards' out to show how the money has been sent. This is my postcard, fittingly of a school, sent from Penny at Alexander Residence.
Here is Davina filming in the school in Agbogbloshie the largest slum community in Accra, Ghana, with 700,000 people. 200 children can now attend school thanks to money from Comic relief which extended a small shack for 20 students set up by an amazing women called Paulina. Wonder if this clip will be on Red Nose Day coverage, 15th March?
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.
