BROWNIES and Guides were given the chance to find out a little more about different religions at Solihull’s first Faiths for Fun event.
Girls aged between seven and 13 learnt about minority faiths in the borough – Buddhism, Sikhism, Hinduism and the Baháʼí Faith at the event organised by Solihull Faiths Forum which brings faith groups together for a greater mutual understanding and friendship.
The Faiths for Fun event gave the Girl Guiding groups the chance to learn about what makes these faiths unique and what unites them.
Pat Wilkinson, chair of Solihull Faiths Forum said: “The event was an opportunity for the young people to gain an understanding about different faiths in a fun and informal setting.
“It was a chance to celebrate the borough’s diversity and promote a message of people of different faiths living in peace, unity and harmony.”
Fiona Bubb, Solihull Guiding leader said: “We are pleased that the first ‘Faiths for Fun’ event was held with our Guiding groups.
“It was a chance for the girls to learn about different faiths in our borough and have the opportunity to ask questions.”
