Lauren Haughey I signed up to The Gorilla Trek with the hope of being able to participate in such an eye-opening and rewarding experience. I will be supporting the Uganda Wildlife authority while trekking through the forest to witness the last remaining Silverback gorillas, in addition to helping a local community build a playground for a school.

To do this, I aim to fundraise £2000. The majority of this funding will be donated to East African Playgrounds to support educational programmes and improve the lives of those within in the area, while a small part of the funding will also go towards my own living expenses.

With this in mind, I would like to say any funds donated to this cause would be massively appreciated as I am eager to join the team and get started on such an amazing project!
