Postcard from Ghana (25 years of Comic Relief)

There are bloggers and tweeters of all sorts in this world.  We choose our own subjects and style and we have our own space in which to express ourselves.  There are millions of us all doing it in our own ways.  Mine is a small way.

Then, like in life, there are the ‘A list’ bloggers.  These are the types who consistently win awards with their blogging, help people out for altruistic reasons and (sorry to sound cringe-worthy) ‘make a difference’.  These last couple of days, three internationally famous (well if they are not yet, they ought to be) blogging vlogging tweeting photographing mummy superbeings have just been to Ghana with a team including Jonathan Ross and Davina McCall to celebrate 25 years of Comic Relief.

Comic Relief are clearly not silly, they have obviously seen how influential these type of super bloggers can be, and how supported and encouraged they would be in getting across the message in time for Red Nose Day.  When the ‘secret thing’ was finally out in the open on Twitter, the three bloggers invited the rest of us to get involved by requesting a digital postcard from Ghana, which many of us duly did.

I was totally excited to receive mine last night, which read as below and featured a photograph taken at the Virtuous Women’s Bakery (the same one recently featured on the Great British Bake Off).  From the others I have seen, each one of these postcards was different – you can find them all at the linky page at  I recommend you visit this page to view all of the fantastic photographs and to learn more about the different places they visited and some of the people they met, whose lives have been improved thanks to Comic Relief.  You can also find out more at the bloggers’ own sites, and

I always love it if you share my posts, but this one especially so.  37 days to Red Nose Day!  And let that be the last time you scoff at the mummy blogger!

Hello Hatty!
On the left you see Abigal from the African Women’s Development Fund, centre is ‘Auntie Sara’ and to the right is Penny. The AWDF received money from Comic Relief and with some of that money bought an industrial oven for this bakery (Virtuous Women’s Bakery). Auntie Sara is the lady who started up the bakery and has helped it to flourish, supporting lots of women, including many single mothers.
This is a digital postcard sent from TeamHonk (;; ) during their travels with Comic Relief in Ghana celebrating #goodwork.
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 at
