SIDMOUTH Save the Children Shop will be adopted by Girl Guides for a day in December in their hope to change the world.

1st Woodbury Guides are celebrating their centenary by teaming up with the local charity on Sunday, December 7 from 10am-4pm.

The scheme is part of a larger plan organised by Girlguiding UK to create 19 different projects for girls and young women to change the world.

They have been involved in making goods and publicising the event.

All funds raised will go towards Save the Children's lifesaving health and hunger work.

The charity helps children in countries who are dying at a young age and it helps to provide lifesaving equipment such as rehydration salts.

Hannah Estcourt, a Woodbury Guide, said: "Supporting Save the Children's work is very important to us as the fundraising we're doing in Sidmouth will make a difference to so many children around the world.

"Everyone at 1st Woodbury Guides is really looking forward to adopting the shop and we hope we can raise as much as possible to help save children's lives.
