I have never been particularly good at anything like this; I don’t like to ask much of people and certainly have never taken any initiative in regards to fundraising. However, beeing at uni has made me realise just how lucky I am compared to millions, if not billions, of others around the globe, and I will have spent my year well if I am able to say I stepped out of my comfort zone and raised thousands for those less fortunate than myself.

Part of the fundraised money (£500) will also go to the Ugandan Wildlife Authority (through the purchase of a gorilla permit) who help to preserve the national parks in Uganda and protect the endangered silverbacks, whom I will be trekking to see whilest I am there. However, what I’m most looking forward to is helping to build a playground, giving me an opportunity to practically as well as financially support many in the local community there.

This is an unbelievable opportunity and challenge, one that I’m really looking forward to pursuing throughout the year and I appreciate anything anyone reading this can do to help me reach (and even exceed) my goal.

Thanks!
