In 2 months, I'll be heading to Uganda with the charity East African Playgrounds in order to help build playgrounds. East African Playgrounds trains their own team of local builders, who we will be working alongside, and uses only the best local materials to build custom designed playgrounds, which are maintained over time by volunteers like me!
Play has an incredible benefit on the development of a child - it builds physical, social, emotional and cognitive skills, whilst giving children the space in which to make sense of the world and exercise freedom of thought, too.
I've been fundraising my little booty off by working part time and donating what I earn, as well as running bake and toy sales at home. But like Tesco says, every little helps! And the biggest help comes from YOU - friends and family!
