My son says I should definitely go as a wheelbarrow, his sister suggests a lightbulb, while my husband reckons I should just pin Monopoly money all over my clothes. At the moment I have absolutely no idea what to wear when I take part in the Team Honk bloggers’ relay from Land’s End to John O’Groats in aid of Sport Relief. (Team Honk is a brilliant charity blogging campaign set up to support Comic Relief last year).
My legs are too short to cover the whole 3,000 mile trip so I’ve signed up for the London section of the route on February 5th, 2014. This section has a Monopoly theme (hence my family’s sartorial suggestions) and is therefore called Honkopoly (Team Honk – Monopoly – geddit?):
The aim of the 3,000 mile relay from Land’s End to John O’Groats is to raise upwards of £20,000 for Sport Relief. The relay started in Cornwall on Sunday and the Team Honk baton is being transported across the country by blogger power right now.
24 bloggers are taking part in the London Honkopoly bid to cover as much of the Monopoly board as we can in a day. I’ll be travelling by micro scooter (I think) from Victoria to Kings Cross Station via various London Landmarks featured in the famous board game. But I really, really don’t know what to wear. Any suggestions?
If you’d like to donate to Sport Relief you can do so via the Team Honk Sport Relief giving page or you can text HONK to 70005 and donate £5.

The Honkopoly bloggers I’ll be scootering and walking with in London include jenography, Domestic goddesque, HPMcQ, Franglaise mummy, Grenglish, Not another mummy blog, Chocolate is not the only fruit, The holiday tots, Babes about town, I carried a watermelon, A baby on board, Manaias mama, Clarina’s contemplations, Hatty daze, Pigeon pair and me, and SE magazines.
The first ever Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Games take place from Friday 21st to Sunday 23rd March 2014. The public can join in by running, swimming or cycling their way to raising cash at over a thousand venues around the country, including the landmark events at Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
Sport Relief is a huge fundraising event which brings the entire nation together to get active, raise cash and change lives. The money raised by the public is spent by Comic Relief to help transform the lives of some of the poorest and most disadvantaged people both at home in the UK and across the world.
