Natasha Tiltman Hey Everyone! I've signed up to take part in 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 am also hoping to fundraise towards my flights, so any money raised above £2,000 can be reimbursed by East African Playgrounds to me, up to the cost of my flight.

I will be going to Uganda trek to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorilla's. If you know me you will know how much I love going to Port Lympne, so will I cry when I see these animals in the wild, probably, yes! As well as this I will be living and working within a local community to build a playground for a school.

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. We are fortunate to grow up in part of the world where playgrounds and parks have been easily accessible, but many children in Uganda don't have a safe place to play and have fun.

Since 2009, East African Playgrounds has built over 300 playgrounds in communities across Uganda. Even a small donation will help to ensure the well being of the children and future children in Uganda.

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