Athena Atkinson I've signed up for the charity East African Playgrounds to raise £2000 to help bring the gift of play to some of the world's most disadvantaged children. Play has an incredible benefit on a child's development; I believe every child should have this opportunity as it builds physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills, whilst giving them the space in which to make sense of the world and exercise freedom of thought.

£25 could provide a small herd of toy animals for the children to play on
£100 could fund a one-month educational play programme
£250 could give the children the best climbing frame they have ever seen! Athena Atkinson
