Sophie Wong Since joining Loughborough University, there have been many opportunities to raise money for charity. I was particularly drawn to East African Playgrounds and have signed up to join the charity as they go to work in Uganda in August 2019. The charity's focus is based on bringing play to children's lives which is something every child should have. A message from the charity states, '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'. As a result, 60% of my total raised will go directly to supporting East African Playgrounds whilst the remaining will aid me in travel, accommodation and living.

In addition to building the playground, I will be going on a trek to find the last remaining Silverback Mountain Gorilla's as well as living and working within a local community.

I am very excited to see what myself and the charity can do next August and so, I would be very grateful for any donations towards my fundraising.

Thank you :) Sophie Wong
