Sing for Water at Thames Festival 2pm Sunday 13 September

If you're in London next weekend, 12/13 September, why not join the Thames festival, there will be lots of great activities along the capital's river
Scattered Gardener will be taking part in Sing for Water at the Scoop, outside City Hall and close by Tower Bridge, along with friends from the Colliers Wood Community Choir and around 800 voices from choirs across the country.
We are raising funds for WaterAid, which brings clean water supplies, essential for health, to communities in developing countries. This year support is directed to Ghana and Malawi, both countries where life expectancy is low ( under 40 in Malawi) and infant mortality frighteningly high. Small amounts of money can do great things, so please give generously! You can sponsor me here

Many thanks to gardenblogger VP for reminding me to post about this - she took part last year and I followed her lead to the justgiving site! Have a gander at her list of events for gardenlovers while you're there...
For a report of last year's Sing for Water event, see here
The WaterAid website also gives lots of info about the countries they're working in and how the money is spent.

Hi Scattered Gardener - thanks for the link!

I just came over to wish you well for Sunday - wish I was there to sing too! We did our SFW in June - 642 singers in Bristol at the Harbourside. Not as many as will be at The Scoop, but a pretty good turnout for the first Sounth Western SFW event!

Hi, finally got your blog address via the boys yesterday. Hope your singing for water aid went well. Help please - what do I do now that my sunflowers are bent double and done? JH xx
