Apologies first of all if you got an email notification about a similarly named post yesterday. That is what happens when you try and get organised by planning posts for the week, and then don’t get around to writing the actual post whilst at the same time forgetting to cancel the auto publish. As you can probably tell it has been a crazy few months. The culmination of which was this weekend.
The first ever Comic Relief Danceathon, the biggest ever audience participation event that they have organised was held at Wembley. Team Honk were on board from the outset and became a band of 100 or so who volunteered to give up their Sunday to dance for six hours. Many who couldn’t make it danced at home, and my parents will be dancing whilst on holiday in Barbados this Friday.
Essentially it is done, we have achieved far more than we could have imagined this year. We had hoped for 500 people to be bloggers but for all sorts of reasons we didnt get to that figure but bloody hell the 100 we did get worked their backsides off and more than made up for it. We have, this morning, smashed the £30,000 figure we reached last year. Something we never dared dream about.
The only way I can do this post is by doing a Storify with all the tweets. But it is long, it could have been three times as long but I wanted to get this out and say a massive thank you for all your support. I am struggling to string a sentence together at the moment so this is the only way I can get all of this out!
Actually to Bras Galore for the real support of a sports bra, something I have never owned before. It did me proud and means there are at least two parts of my body that don’t ache. I have never owned a sports bra before but their “Freya Active Sport Bra” was one of the most comfortable bras I have ever owned and really did give me all the support I needed, especially during the Gangnam section when I was up on the stage in front of not only the audience but the TV crowd too. Bras Galore kindly sent me this bra and I am so thrilled they did, I would have been a wreck without it and at just £40 it is a bargain given the amount of engineering in it to hold my bazoomers in place.
And to Hotter Shoes for the great shoes and sponsorship.
And to every single person who donated money. Thank you. Honestly, truly. You are amazing. Without you there would be no point. You are helping us change lives with those donations and we all adore you for it.
Now, put the kettle on, sit down, and have a scroll.
Warning it contains pictures of my arse
Same time next year?
oh before I really go, remember Morph? Well how cute is this video?
AND OF COURSE IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO STILL DONATE IF YOU WISH!
