Demi Jones I've signed up to take on the Gorilla Trek with the charity East African Playgrounds to raise £2,000 to give children their childhood through play! Play has an incredible benefit on a child's development; I believe every child should have this opportunity as it builds physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills, whilst giving them the space in which to make sense of the world and exercise freedom of thought. East African Playgrounds build playgrounds all over Uganda - including in refugee camps - helping to empower some of the worlds most disadvantaged children. This is an amazing cause, and I am very excited to start raising money to give back to the children in Uganda!

Your donations can fund....

£10 - builds a toy giraffe for the children of a community to play with
£15 - builds a motorbike out of tires, allowing kids to engage their creativity in role play 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 with space for board games such as checkers or snakes and ladders!

To raise this money, I will be spending three weeks in Uganda - taking on every kind of terrain the world can offer (mountains, lakes and jungles), before volunteering on a playground that I will be helping to build.

Every penny donated will go to a non-profit organisation focused on developing East Africa.

Please donate anything you can, to this important cause, to give children their childhoods!
