Annabelle Legood Hi, my name is Annabelle and I will be volunteering with East African Playgrounds! Play is a crucial tool in the development of social, cognitive, physical and emotional skills and I believe every child deserves the opportunity to explore these skills fully. East African Playgrounds has and continues to build playgrounds all over Uganda and its work has monumental importance in allowing children exercise and freedom of thought. I will be volunteering over in Western Uganda next summer and have a target of £2000 to raise for this charities amazing work!

To raise this sum, I will be spending a week trekking and canoeing across every terrain the world has to offer, from lakes to foothills to rain forests. As an ethical trip, I will also be visiting and helping to conserve the last remaining silver back Gorillas before moving on to turn an empty field into an exciting playground experience for a local Ugandan community.

Some examples of what donations fund are:

£10 builds a toy giraffe for the children of a community to play with
£25 could provide a small herd of animals for the children to play on
£100 could fund a one month educational play programme

Of the money raised, £300 will go straight to the Ugandan Wildlife Authority, £600 covers the cost of the trip and the remaining £1,100 goes directly to East African Playgrounds to continue their incredible work. Please help me raise my target by giving any donation you can. Any and all donations will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
