Team Honk are on the lookout for dancers this year and I, in a moment of Strictly Come Dancing folly, signed up! I saw the words Team Honk of which I am member and didn’t think twice about adding my support to their worthy cause although now I think about it, maybe I should have stopped and thought.
You may remember I trekked up Snowdon with them in red pants and yes it was a kind of hen party. I wore a pink sash and red knickers all the way up and all the way down. Here we are throwing our knickers in the air. March 2013 Comic Relief.
Then the next year I, who hates cycling, cycled over to Southend taking with me the Team Honk baton single handed wearing the classic Essex trademark of white heels for Sport Relief.
And now we’re back to Comic Relief and the idea is we dance for 6 hours on stop at Wembley Stadium. I told you I should have thought about it. Forgive me if I can’t see the funny side of this, mind you what was funny about trekking Snowdon come to think of it.
NEVER MIND as it’s all for an extremely good cause, a #lastingchange

There was one small snag however and that was the £150 sponsorship, it had me worrying. I hate asking everyone for money but I need to secure £150 in order to stake my plot on the dance floor.
Betfair have come to the rescue, they are covering my sponsorship fee which means I can skip, hop and jump all the way to Wembley on the 8th March International Woman’s Day which is such a nice coincidence seeing as I’ll be jigging with a stadium full of gals.
