Samuel Eldridge 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 travelling to Uganda to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorillas and to help in conserving the critically endangered species. I will then, for the majority of my trip, live and work within a local community to build a playground for a school.

Play has incredible benefits to a child’s development. I believe every child should have this opportunity as it builds physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills. This is why I am travelling to Uganda to build a platform for the most disadvantaged children of our world.

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