25 years of Red Nose Day

6th Feb 2013


I love writing my blogs and I love reading other people. I am naturally quite nosey and so love to see what people are up to in the big wide world. Every so often I come across something in the land of blog and think Wow, I wish I was doing that or that’s it! That’s what I am doing this all for.

Well last week I was waiting, watching and reading all about #thesecretthing. When The Secret Thing was revealed I had one of those moments.

So what was The Secret Thing? It called #GoodWork and it’s for Red Nose Day. Three UK bloggers, Mummy Barrow aka T, Mammasaurus aka Annie and Penny from the Alexander Residence revealed the secret thing last week. All three of them aka Team Honk, were off to Ghana for two days to visit 4 projects that Red Nose Day has helped over it’s 25 years. They are now back home and I have been lucky enough to receive a digital post card from a school they visited to share with you all.

From the fingers of Mummy Barrow –

This school is on the edge of a slum in Accra.  A slum that is home to 75,000 people.   All of whom that we saw waved, high fived us, and wanted to show us their homes.   The school has 250 pupils ranging from 2 to 16 and was started 10 years ago.

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

Amazing work by everyone, well done ladies 🙂

I’m looking forward to seeing lots more amazing things people have done in aid of Red Nose Day and indeed that Red Nose Day has done in aid of people.  Red Nose Day is on Friday 15th March.

    Great to see what all the good work has done. I visited Ghana in 2011 and donated my Bolton football shirts to the children of Ghana. A fantastic moment in my life and kick started my blog:

    This year I am getting involved with Red Nose Day and am doing ‘something funny for money’. I’m dying my afro bright red for the day. My sponsor form is here: As you can see I have set myself a target of £250. and am getting closer and closer.
