William Antcliff I've signed up to the Gorilla Trek with the charity, East African Playgrounds with the huge aspiration to raise £2,000 to help bring the gift of play to the children of Uganda. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for me to help as many children as possible in a deprived Ugandan primary school.

I will be going to the Uganda trek to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorilla's as well as living and working within a local community to build a brand new playground from scratch for a school. On top of this I will be working with the children personally by running interactive sessions that build their confidence, teamwork and other essential life skills. I will also be working with the Ugandan primary school teachers on delivering quality training with the hope of maximising the learning outcomes of the children at school for years to come.

It may not seem it, but a playground is a classroom in disguise. A classroom in which the children don't know they are learning, they don't feel like they are learning, but really they are taking in the whole world whilst playing with their friends.
This is something we might take for granted but it is important to realise that having the opportunity to learn through playing with other children in a fun, educational and safe environment is in fact an essential aspect of all children's lives and something that not every child in Uganda has access to.

I want to give this gift to the children of Uganda and I would love it if you could please help by donating towards my fundraising. With your donations, you will be helping me to help the children in Uganda who are in desperate need of fun and safe playground area and other interactive learning facilities.

For more detail on where your money will go, please find a breakdown at https://www.eastafricanplaygrounds.org/gorilla-trek-details.

I am also fundraising for my flights, so any money that I raise above the £2000 can be reimbursed by East African Playgrounds to me(upon request), up to the cost of my flight. William Antcliff
