The little red suitcase pictured here – in Nonsuch Park, Surrey – is well-travelled and well-loved.
I’ve taken it everywhere for the last year or so, through all my Pop-Up Adventure Play related bouncing around and popping up. It’s so bright and glossy that people smile at it when I wheel past. It’s so small it fits as carry on with even the most budget of airways.
And now, as part of our involvement with Epsom and Ewell’s Sports Relief event, it’s become a Pop-Up Adventure Play module! Sports Relief is a massive national charity event – this year more than a million people took part in the UK and raised more than 52 million pounds!
“It’s a good idea, this. I didn’t even think to bring anything (for the younger siblings who weren’t running) and they’d have got so bored just sat waiting. This is much better, they get to have a play and meet some other children. And what did you bring… oh, it’s just stuff? Well. I could do that myself next time!” (Mum)
