Charlotte MacRae I've 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. Anything raised after the £2000 will go towards paying for my flights over to Uganda.

I will be going to Uganda trek to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorilla's as well as living and wokring wihtin a local community to build a playgrounds 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. Play is a large part in the development of the brain as a child and in the previous years of the charity doing this project, they have seen significant change in the children's behaviour and educational progress within the areas they have been to. This opportunity is a fantastic opportunity and if you are able to donate to the cause, please do because it'll put a smile on at least one child's face.
