Shujaat Waraich I've signed up to the Gorilla Trek with the charity East African Playgrounds to raise £2,500 to help bring the gift of play to the children of Uganda. I will be going to Uganda for 3 weeks to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorilla's as well as living and working within a local community to build a playground for a school.

A playground is a classroom in disguise, children don't know they are learning but they are. They don't feel like they are learning because it is a different setting to a classroom, but really they are taking in the whole world whilst playing with their friends. I personally feel as though a playground is where I made my closest friends whilst playing football or swinging on swings. Children build relationships with their peers and learn to understand one another whilst developing their social skills. We in the UK take advantage of such luxuries that many children around the world don't have. Please help me give this gift to the children of Uganda by donating and supporting.

Thank you very much!
