I am sure many of you are thinking I have definitely lost the plot for lots of different reasons, but if I was to say that I will be crossing the Forth Road Bridge in tartan and then white water rafting the River Tay in March, I am pretty sure you will think I have totally taken leave of my senses.
Well if I say its all for charity, does that improve things?
Have you heard of Sport Relief? Of course you have!
Have you heard of the Team Honk Relay? Maybe not. Allow me to explain.
Next week, Fionoutdoors will pick up the baton at the border and cycle it to Edinburgh. The baton will then travel over the forth road bridge in style (think tartan, think onesies, think scooters, think....actually maybe time to stop thinking!) with me and a gang of bloggers including Ellen from In a bundance, Donna from Mummy central and on to Aberfeldy for some white water rafting (in March!!) before heading up a Munro and finishing up tired, but elated in John 'Groats on Sunday 23rd March.
If you need any more convincing. Here's what your money will do:
- £1 could provide a hot meal for a child in the UK living in extreme poverty.
- £5 could pay for a mosquito net to protect a mother and her baby in Africa from contracting malaria while they sleep.
- £10 could enable an older person in the UK who just lost someone they love to attend a group activity.
- £25 could run a sports session for disabled children in the UK, giving them the chance to play with other young people.
- £100 could feed 200 children living on the streets in India for one day.
- £300 could provide a water point in the slums of Tanzania, giving hundreds of families access to safe, clean water.
- £500 could provide six months of support for a young person in the UK with mental health issues.
