#TeamHonk sent me a #goodwork postcard - hurray!

Once Upon A Time, there were three lovely ladies who blogged and vlogged. One day they decided to do some #goodwork.

This year the #goodwork was in the form of a trip to Ghana, alongside mega-celebrities Davina and Wossy (*scream!*), to report back on how #rednoseday money has been put to good use on different projects out there.

Imagine my delight then, when I realised they had taken the time to send me an individual postcard, with a photo taken over there that no-one else has. I feel so special.

Dear Steph

Beautiful mum and baby waiting for a vaccine at a health centre in Ghana. The vaccine programme is similar to the Uk, except for the addition of vaccines like Yellow Fever. Children are also given a rotavirus vaccine funded by comic relief as diarrhoea accounts for 10% of deaths among Ghana's under-fives. Comic Relief has given GAVI a grant of $200,000 to provide rotavirus vaccine in Ghana to help prevent against this potentially fatal condition. 

Love Penny

This is a digital postcard sent from TeamHonk (; during their travels with Comic Relief in Ghana celebrating #goodwork. 

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

I think it's amazing how these lovely ladies have been able to spread the #goodnews so well through social media. It must have been a life-changing experience for them in a whirlwind few days. Let's all pledge to support Comic Relief and Red Nose Day again this year. The poverty never stops but we can improve it bit by bit with everyone's help.


  1. fantastic! They really are doing good work out there aren't they. x

    1. yes, amazing for them - and for us to hear so much first hand x

  2. Total scream. But we spent all day with Davina on Monday and she was just like you would expect. Including letting us photograph her despite the lack of make up, the sweaty forehead and the flu!!

    And being involved in this trip was such an honour

    we have been blown away by all the support. Thank you xxx

    1. I imagined Davina would be the least Diva like celebrity ever :)
      glad it all went better than well for you!

  3. Thank you SO much Steph! It's been epic - and that's just the support from back home!
