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 http://www.thamesfestival.org/weekend/highlights/
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 www.justgiving.com/scatteredgardener
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 http://www.wateraid.org/uk/get_involved/events/event_news/6965.asp
The WaterAid website also gives lots of info about the countries they're working in and how the money is spent.
