SIDFORD Brownies in their bid to change the world performed a concert demonstrating the importance of water this week.
The 24 members of 2nd Sidford St Peters Brownies, who have joined 500,000 girls across the UK in the Girlguiding UK: Changing the World Challenge, are raising funds and awareness for WaterAid's project in Nepal.
The youngsters held a well supported 'Sing for Water' concert at St Peter's church on Tuesday.
They performed six songs written for the project and several girls read poems and prayers as well as taking part in a drama.

An Easter egg raffle was held and donations were even taken for using the toilet to compensate for the nine litres of water used per flush.

Nikki Chapman, Brownie Leader, said: "The girls have really thrown themselves into the Changing the World project and it was fantastic to see their enthusiasm in producing the Sing for Water concert."
Girlguiding UK has said that if every member raises just �15, the movement will have raised a quarter of a million pounds through the project and so far Sidford Brownies have raised over �330.
In September Girlguiding UK launches its centenary celebrations and in the run up, they hope to show the positive force that guiding has across the world.
