Dayle Hopes As some of you already know, I have signed up with the Charity ‘East African Playgrounds’ and will be heading out to Uganda for four weeks next summer to help transform a community school. I will be assisting on a creative play program to inspire children to learn and develop themselves, as well as constructing a playground for some of the world’s most disadvantaged children.

I have chosen this charity for obvious reasons, having worked with children and intending too in the future this issue is very close to my heart. I believe that every child should have the opportunity to have a stimulating environment in which to learn and am therefore aiming to raise £800 for this charity.

This donation will go towards playground equipment, art and craft sessions and giving support to underprivileged children. Here are some examples of what your donation may go towards:

£10 – builds a toy giraffe for the children to play with

£15 – builds a motorbike out of tires, allowing children to engage their creativity in role play situations

£20 – funds safety equipment for disadvantaged young adults, helping them be safe whilst starting employment with East African Playgrounds

£50 – builds a games table (snakes and ladders, checkers etc.)

Please help me to reach my fundraising target by giving whatever you can. Any donation will be greatly appreciated. Dayle Hopes
