Unverified User I've signed up to the Gorilla Trek with the charity East African Playgrounds to raise £2,000 to help build a playground in a Ugandan community that will improve the lives of hundreds of children now and in years to come.

I will be going to Uganda to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorillas as well as live and work within a local community to help build a playground to facilitate play for some world's most disadvantaged children. The playground will help build physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills, something every child should have a right to develop.

Of the £2000, £300 goes to the Ugandan Wildlife Authority to help the conservation of the Gorillas. £600 is spent on food, accommodation and travel, meaning the remaining £1,100 is a direct donation to East African Playgrounds to fund their amazing work.

Please help me to reach my fundraising target by giving whatever you can - any donation will mean a lot. Unverified User
