Team Honk Brighton support local charity Safety Net

Safety-Rocks-for-website-safety netIn just a few days I am joining over 200 fabulous people as part of Team Honk. I will be taking part in the Lands End to John O’groats bloggers relay in aid of Sport Relief.

Before I signed up to this I really didn’t know much about Sports Relief and I had no idea that the work they do effects people so close the home.

One of the amazing causes that Sport Relief support is local charity Safety Net.

Did you know that in Brighton & Hove the number of children at risk from abuse is almost 3 times the national average? The numbers are rising but Safety Net Brighton is using an innovative technique to equip young people with the skills to keep safe, develop resilience and to not be afraid to speak up.

They offer young survivors one-on-one sessions followed by group work which give them the skills to become better able to deal with the effects of abuse.

Empowering children to have a voice. Amazing.

I am delighted to be able to support this local charity as part of #TeamHonkBrighton.

A special thanks to the mums at Micro Scooter who have donated a brilliant scooter for us to complete the challenge. You may have read my previous post (we have lost the plot) promising to do it on roller skates. After realising that I’m not 18 anymore those lovely ladies may have just saved the whole #TeamHonkRelay baton being held up in Brighton A&E!

At around 11 am on Monday 20th Jan I will pick up the Team Honk baton from ‘Cider With Sophie’ at Hove Lagoon. I will then scooter the 4 mile stretch along Brighton seafront with ‘Gammon & Chips’ to Brighton Marina. If we manage it with no injuries we should arrive around an hour later to  pass the baton to Di Coke of ‘Super Lucky Di’ who will be running 2.5 miles to Saltdean Lido wearing a ninja suit.

Team Honk bloggers relay have raised over £3000 in less than a week.

GO TEAM HONK!

    Great to read of local projects being supported. I know I was really interested to hear of projects Sport Relief helps fund near to me too.

    Thanks ever so much for supporting – much appreciated x

    It is always so lovely to see the projects that are supported by all the fund raising. Makes it really real, doesn’t it?

    There are so many worthy causes out there that desperately need these funds and it’s great to hear of those close to home that will benefit. Good luck on the Micro Scooter and avoid A & E.
