Ben Player Having always been interested in Charity work, from teaching in India to setting up Charity Auctions for UNICEF, I have decided to sign up to East African Playgrounds Gorilla Trek, to help raise funds and build a playground in Uganda next summer. They have built over 300 playgrounds in schools, community centres and refugee settlements across Uganda. These playgrounds are not only a vital space to have fun, make friends and play together but also they have proven to increase school attendance and enrolment, reduced antisocial behaviour and increase the perceived importance of children having their childhoods.

Additionally Uganda has one of the most open policies on refugees, they do not interrogate or question any, but rather give them a piece of land to farm and an identity by immersing them into a community.

Finally your money will also help to go towards caring for the endangered silverback Gorillas, of which half the population reside within Uganda!

Please, please, please donate and watch me throughout the year take part in daft challenges for an incredible cause! Ben Player
