Cathie Saunders I've signed up for East African Playgrounds, which is a charity that implements play programmes in Early Childhood Development (ECD) centres, primary schools, hospitals and refugee settlements across Uganda. In 2018, I will be going to Uganda with a team of people from the charity to help build a playground and will be taking part in a Creative Play Programme with the children, helping them to develop physical, cognitive and social skills.

Examples of what you can fund with a donation are...

£20 - funds safety equipment for a disadvantaged young adult, helping them to be safe as they start their meaningful employment with East African Playgrounds

£25 could provide a small herd of toy animals for the children to play on

£100 could fund one-month educational play programme

£250 could give the children the best climbing frame they (or you) have ever seen!

I'll be fundraising throughout the year, doing lots of different tasks and events including the Southampton Half marathon!! East African Playgrounds is a non-profit organisation, so every penny you donate will go towards helping children in Uganda to have a more playful childhood!

Thank you! Cathie Saunders
