Big Summer DO take action
Help bring back childhood this summer
As the glorious sun shines, people up and down the country are coming together with loved ones and organising their own Big Summer DO in a bid to bring back childhood.
Above, you'll find lovely photos of an event held last weekend in Bloxwich, where young and old enjoyed childhood delights from strawberries and cream to face painting.
Being the nosey person I am, I wanted to find out what everyone else's fondest memories of their childhood summers were. We're now revealing more results from our survey of 1000 people around childhood.
An amazing 74% of people said their fondest memories were of playing outside in the school summer holidays. Oh how seemingly endless those summer days were, creating your own adventures outside with nothing but open space and your mates.
The other most common memories were having a water fight (loved those Supersoakers), family picnics and outdoor games like hopscotch, limbo or piggy in the middle.

We visualised the results in our colourful collection of circles below. It's interactive - if you move your mouse near the circles, they should scatter away. (If you're viewing this on a tablet or mobile, you may need to tap the circles to achieve a similar result.)
If you're inspired to get involved in a Big Summer DO with your family and friends, find out how you can get involved. Every penny raised at your Big Summer DO goes towards bringing back childhood to those at risk of losing theirs.
