Alice Wenger I have signed up to the Gorilla Trek with the charity, East African Playgrounds to raise £2000 to help bring the gift of play to the children of Uganda.

In July 2019 I will be going to Uganda for 2-3 weeks. During my time, I will spend time with the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorilla's as well as living and working within a local community. The majority of the time will be spent in a school working in classrooms and helping to build a playground for school children.

To raise money I will be running the Ironbridge 2019 Half Marathon in March as well as doing Street Collections and Bag-packing in Bath and London. From a job at University I will also contribute some of my own earnings towards the £2000 target.

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 with a large target, any donations would be extremely grateful!

Thank you! Alice Wenger
