Who Made Your Pants?

Gorgeous Pants. By women, for women.

Honk Honk! Closing the Comic Relief circle

Those of you who follow us on twitter and facebook will have seen me talking recently about something called Team Honk. Team Honk is a group of people determined to do something funny for money for Comic Relief, founded (some may say whipped into shape by) by three awesome bloggers, Tanya, Annie and Penny

Well, as well as going off to Ghana to see the impact of the funds raised by Comic Relief, these intrepid folks decided to walk up Snowdon – in March, in the cold – and to add the ‘something funny’ – they wore our bright red pants over their trousers, superhero style.

We’ve been told they got a few looks, but that it helped lighten the mood, which is what you’re going to need when you’re stomping up a mountain in Wales (my homeland is not known for the most clement of weather, eh?) in March

We love that this happened as we were part funded by Comic Relief some time back. They gave £5778 to pay for a trainer for our team, to deliver and embed technical and employability skills for a period of time. And we love – love – that we have been able to close the circle by, in a tiny way, being part of giving something back.

Team Honk have, at the time of writing, raised £5664 (almost as much as we were funded by) and while, of course, we want you to keep on supporting us and buying our pants, if you’ve any spare dosh, I’d urge you to bung it their way. Our work isn’t done yet – the circle isn’t completely closed – but every penny given to us went to making a real difference and I’ve no doubt that very other organisation supported by Comic Relief was as grateful and supported as we were.

There are more photos and videos of Team Honk than I can shake a pair of pants at but my selected picks of are these…
