Alice Wenger I've signed up to the Gorilla Trek with the charity, East African Playgrounds to raise £2,000 to help bring the gift of play to the children of Uganda.

I will be going to Uganda trek to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorilla's as well as living and working within a local community to build playgrounds for schools.

A playground is a classroom in disguise, 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.

I will be running the Ironbridge 2019 Half Marathon as well as doing Street Collections and Bagpacking in Bath, Bristol and London.

East African Playgrounds has won several awards for the sustainability and ethics of its volunteering program therefore all the money goes to an extremely good cause.

Having never fundraised before, and a large target, any donations would be extremely grateful!

Thank you! Alice Wenger
