Well that blew the cobwebs away! Today we did a one mile Sponsored Splash through a beautiful part of the New Forest, just outside of Burley. We walked for a mile, jumping in as many puddles as we could find along the way (and there were quite a few of those around!)
We did this to help raise money for Sport Relief as part of Team Honk. Team Honk are currently doing a relay from Lands End to John O'Groats and as we weren't around when the baton travelled through our area we wanted to find a way to do our bit to help.
The Princess and The Pickle were wrapped up in fleece trousers and tops with waterproofs over... but in hindsight my skinny jeans probably weren't the best choice of outfit!
The Pickle made us all laugh by running through the puddles to get to each 'island' before any sharks got him!
We'd love it if you are able to donate, you can do it here.
Win a pair of Wellies!
Another way we are raising money is by running a competition to design a pair of wellies. The Princess drew this picture which you can save and print, colour, paint or stick things on - or you can draw (or even make!) your own - be as creative as you like!
The winner will be chosen by The Princess and The Pickle (so you need to impress an 8 year old and a 3 year old!) and the prize (kindly donated by Muddy Puddles) is a pair of children's wellies of the winner's choice from www.muddypuddles.com We will also give a small prize to a runner up chosen at random from all the other entries. To enter: Take a photo of your creation and send it to us via Twitter or Facebook before midnight on 23rd March.
Entrants must donate a minimum of just £1 per entry (multiple entries welcome) to Sport Relief here and include their Twitter or Facebook name on the donation to validate entries.
The competition is open to all ages but entries for under 16s must be made by a parent/guardian. Open to UK residents only.
Please share the competition with anyone you think might like to enter and help us reach Team Honk's £20,000 target for Sport Relief!
