Britt Hatton I have signed up for the Gorilla Trek with the charity East African Playgrounds to raise £2,600 to give children their childhood through play. Play has a huge benefit on a child's development. The charity gives every child the opportunity to build physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills, also giving them the space where they can make sense of the world and be free. East African Playgrounds build playgrounds all over Uganda, including in refugee camps, helping to empower some of the world's most disadvantaged children.

Here are some examples of what you can fund with a donation:

£10 - Builds a toy giraffe for the children of a community to play with
£15 - Builds a motorbike out of tires so kids can involved with creative roleplay scenarios
£20 - Funds safety equipment for a disadvantaged young adult, helping them to be safe as they start their meaningful employment with East African Playgrounds
£50 - Builds a table space for board games

What happens to the money I raise?
£300 - Ugandan Wildlife Authority to protect the Gorillas I will be visiting
£600 - Project costs of food, accommodation and travel (non-profit trek company)
£1,100 - Directly to East African Playgrounds to fund the incredible work they do

Please donate anything you can, and help give children their childhoods. Britt Hatton
