Today we launched the National Trust’s 2013 ‘50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾’ list - updated from last year with fifteen new activities chosen by children over the summer holidays.
Each of the 50 places on the list have been matched to the best place in the UK to enjoy the activity with the 45ft Nootka Cypress at Wallington, Northumberland being revealed as the best tree to climb in the country.
The list was a huge success with children across the country last year and is well on its way to repeat the act with a stack of coverage today including a full page in The Times, The Daily Telegraph, Daily Express, Daily Mail and Daily Mirror, as well as live reports on Daybreak and The Chris Evans Breakfast Show (who read the entire list on air).
Nice work, and a fun summer ahead.

Today we launched a search for the founding fathers of football as part of The FA's 150th anniversary celebrations.
Working with cultural historian Jane Clayton, of the International Football Institute, The FA is calling on the nation to help find the living descendants of the eight men who first penned the rules of the game 150 years ago at the Freemason’s Tavern in London.
Supported by a host of players including Steven Gerrard, Joe Hart and Jermain Defoe, it's safe to say the search is well and truly underway with coverage on Five Live Breakfast, The Today Programme, Sky News Sunrise, Daily Mail and The Sun amongst some of the day's highlights.
Think you can help track down the founding fathers? Get in touch.

Today marks the launch of the world's first Pay By Picture shopping initiative, turning photos into units of currency.
Smartphone holders watching Emmerdale last night were able to snap a picture of the new Weetabix TV ad, take their photo into Boots nationwide and use it to pay for a pack of our client's new breakfast biscuits (worth 55p).

Earlier this year we announced a ‘Battle of the Bands’ style initiative to find an official FA Cup Anthem with various top music acts from Devlin to The Enemy playing live at selected FA Cup ties throughout the season.
The initiative has had its fair share of media coverage all season, but a full page in NME today to coincide with the opening of the public vote kind of sums up what we’ve been doing – introducing the magic of the world’s oldest football competition to new audiences and bringing football and music together in an entirely new way.
Be sure to cast your vote for the first ever official FA Cup Anthem here.
