Comic Relief is 25! Photo Gallery – Health and Wellbeing #GoodWork.

#teamhonk with Jonathan Ross in a rare break in the live link ups, Red Nose appeal filming, meeting women, babies and staff and radio interview action.

On the second day of my visit to Ghana, to celebrate 25 years of Comic Relief, I visited a Mental Health Project and a Vaccine Centre funded by Comic Relief. If you click on the video, let it play then scroll down through the blog post photos, I can virtually talk you through them. Comic Relief encouraged us all to talk about our experiences on our return to help process them, blogging is brilliant for that.

Staff prepare to vaccinate baby Errol Jane Garvey presenter of Woman’s Hour talks to Mercy from GAVI, the global alliance for Vaccines and Immunisations Davina being briefed by the cameraman, she recorded solidly all day for TV live link ups, radio and Red Nose Day appeals to get the #goodwork message out there. Meanwhile Jonathan Ross talks to UK radio in between live TV link ups to Daytime TV. Not accustomed to the heat, we’re all finding it sweltering, yet the babies seem so calm. Me being interviewed by Woman’s Hour at the vaccine centre about my impressions of Ghana and Comic Relief’s work Becky Press Officer at Comic Relief, Jane Garvey presenter of Woman’s Hour, Mercy from GAVI and Angela Robson radio producer, at the vaccine centre in Accra, Ghana Me on a phone interview to BBC Radio Nottingham, laughing because they are telling me it is snowing in Nottingham and some friends have called the show to wish us all well sharing #goodwork I feel a long way from home but so inspired by everything I am sharing in. Why is she looking at me Mum? Beautiful babies waiting to have their vaccines Proud mother and son after a vaccine. Curious baby

In the afternoon we went to a Mental Health self support group:

Mental Health self support group, in Accra Ghana. Project beneficiary Dora leads the other beneficiaries in discussion, while secretary Vivienne takes notes. A project beneficiary, with translation from Bernard of the Basic Needs Trust (left), bravely talks us through his story: his illness, his recovery, the benefits of the group and the business the carpentry project loaned him money to begin. Vivienne was so passionate about how she has benefited from the support group and is the group secretary, taking minutes and encouraging members of the community to use the service. She has trained as a seamstress through the project. Here she is with a member of staff.

Were you on the other side of Team Honk watching or sharing the words, moving images and photographs in the UK? Would love to hear your perceptions.

Annie from Mammasaurus, Tanya from Mummy Barrow and Penny from Alexander Residence travelled with Comic Relief to Ghana.

    EPIC photos! Love them all – it seems ages since we were there already and I must say it felt very odd last night not to have you and Tanya nearby x
