Postcard From Ghana from TeamHonk - Red Nose Day


Three bloggers Team Honk have gone to Ghana for Comic Relief to raise awareness and to mark the 25th anniversary of fundraising fun. With Davina MaCall and Jonathon Ross, they are visiting four places including the Virtuous Women's Bakery, where previously unemployed women have banded together to launch a profitable bakery enterprise. As well as creating this community business they have also used the profits to set up an onsite creche, so they don't have to leave their young children while they work. The bakery was visited by Lorraine Pascale, as seen on the Great British Bake Off. 

They are three amazing women who have given their own time and are keeping us updated on their website and their own blogs. Well done, girls you are doing a wonderful thing.

You can also follow their progress on Mumsnet.

I am honoured to be a part of this inspiring and amazing experience.

Here is my postcard, from Penny


Dear Annie

She was so desperate for me to take a picture of her drawings on the chalk board! At the Virtuous Women's Bakery nursery. Great project that allows women to make a living making and selling bread while their children are cared for over the courtyard.

Love Penny
