The body image advent is the second Nick and Sarah challenge!
Our first challenge was running around for one week collecting photo’s of as many people wearing the MGEDT charity bands as possible (obliged at this point to mention that Sarah won, by quite a bit).
So you know what we are doing…. 24 days, a different body image topic each day and we are hitting the streets to get videos of the public’s opinion on the different topics (you can view the topics in the calendar page) I am sure there will be the odd video of Nick and Sarah as the time goes on (either bemused about something they heard, or it being too funny not to share).
