The Sid Valley Food Bank, the RSPCA and the Amazon rainforest have all benefited from fundraising by the Sidmouth Rangers.
The Rangers, part of the Girlguiding movement, are girls aged 14 to 18.
For their volunteering and fundraising badge, they held a Halloween party and a Christmas party for Rainbow, Brownies and Guides in the Sidmouth district.
They decided to donate to three charities - international, national and local.
One would be of benefit to people, another to animals, and the third to a particular place or the environment.
