Alli Croft Hello everyone, I'm Alli and I have recently 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 by building a play area with my team!

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. This is a crucial life skill that will encourage the children to advance to further education and make their dream occupations become a reality!

Not only will we be putting smiles on the children's faces but we are also especially fortunate to trek to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorillas. These are the last Silverback Mountain Gorillas in the wild and everything is being done to keep them in the wild through conservation.

I want to give this gift to the children of Uganda, can you please help by donating towards my fundraising.

Thank you so much for your support in this journey Alli Croft
