I so admire these fabulous ladies (I am also a little envious if I'm honest!). They are working their arses off to bring us more information about the projects being supported by Comic Relief. I have no doubt that it will be a life changing trip for them. They will see things that will pull at their hearts like never before. They will also feel the immense pride that the people of Africa have. They may have very little but they appreciate everything that is done to help them. They don't want charity. They want the chance to support themselves and with all the #GoodWork, that is exactly what they are doing.
There was no way I could pass up the opportunity to have my very own digital postcard sent from Ghana to display on my blog. The ladies visited a bakery today. The same one that was featured on the Great British Bake Off. My postcard comes from there. Here it is complete with my message underneath.
In this photo Veronica is cutting up the bread before it get passed on to another woman to be shaped and then finally passed on to another woman who pops it in the baking tin and in to the massive oven! You should have seen the size of the knife!
This is a digital postcard sent from TeamHonk (www.mammasaurus.co.uk; www.aresidence.co.uk; www.mummybarrow.com ) 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 rednoseday.com

Red Nose Day has collected £600,000,000 over the last 25 years. Let me type that, Six Hundred Million Pounds has been raised since the first Red Nose Day in 1988. How flippin' amazing is that?! Makes you proud to be British (for once!)
With that money Comic Relief have helped:
• 3 million people affected by HIV in Africa
• Provide 1 million vaccines in Africa and the world’s poorest countries
• At least 7 million people living in urban poverty in slums in Africa and the world’s poorest countries
• Assist over 1 million children in Africa and the world’s poorest countries to get an education
• Prevent or cure blindness for more than 2.4 million people in Africa and the world’s poorest countries
• 10 million people across the UK
Just £30 can vaccinate 6 children against deadly diseases like Whooping Cough and Hepatitis B.
