The National Trust are looking for a group of young advisors to help get more kids outdoors. The idea has come after two pieces of work from the charity, the 50 things to do before you’re 11 ¾ and the Natural Childhood Report.
The aim is to find ten children aged from 7 to 12 who will play a role in improving the National Trust sites for kids and having input into outdoor campaigns.
To kick of the search the Trust will open up its doors to children for free for the whole month of August. Over 200 places will be free of charge to children,** giving them the opportunity to explore National Trust places across the country.
The children picked for the role will be announced later this year and will win free access to National Trust places for their family and themselves.
The North Face have released a Facebook game where the winner will collect gear worth £1000. The game, called Basecamp, essentially is a check in game, the more checkins you gain the higher you climb up a virtual mountain. Whoever is ontop of the mountain on 17 April, 2011 at midnight will win £1,000-worth of North Face gear.
Extra points can be gained by checking into a North Face store around the Uk. So if you fancy getting your hands on some North Face gear then head over to http://www.facebook.com/thenorthface
