Big Summer DO take action
Help bring back childhood this summer
The school summer holidays are well underway - if you need inspiration on how to keep your little ones entertained look no further.
Other favourites were having a water fight, family picnics and outdoor games like hopscotch, limbo or piggy in the middle. Why not bring your favourite childhood memories to life with your children or grandchildren? Back in July we asked 1000 people what their favourite childhood memory was, and over 74% of people said ‘playing outside in the summer’.
This summer hundreds of people will be doing just that and hosting a Big Summer DO. Get together with your friends and family and enjoy all that makes up a traditional, fun, childhood summer – from sharing food to playing outdoors. Download our new Big Summer DO activities to guarantee your guests have a good time.
Every day, deprivation, neglect and caring responsibilities force children across the country to grow up too soon. The money you raise at your Big Summer DO will enable us to give these children back their childhoods.
Fingers crossed this summer is filled with glorious sunshine, but if it it’s not you’ll need to think of some indoor fun: Host a Bake and Brew and invite the neighbours 'round for a tea and cake sale.
You could show your children how to make your favourite recipes, or visit our recipes page for some delicious ideas from Nigella Lawson and Levi Roots.
If you’re feeling especially creative then host your own fashion show like we did at our West Hampstead shop.
