Thank you to all those who helped and supported our Ethical Coffee Morning. Our unintended profit amounted to £281.90 - so we are going to 'twin' four toilets one for St John's , one for the Methodist Church one each for school and institute - and £41.90 extra which we will put to the South Asia Flood Appeal. If you want to know more about toilet twinning see below.
By twinning your toilet, you help those in desperate poverty to have access to a proper latrine, clean water and the information they need to be healthy.
Your smallest room becomes the proud owner of a certificate, complete with a colour photo of its twin and GPS coordinates so you can look up your twin on Google Maps.
Bawili is a widow who lost everything due to civil war. Lack of proper water and a decent toilet caused her family great pain. But when the community came together to help Bawili and her children – everything changed.
‘My daughter was attacked because we didn’t have a toilet. Having a loo is a big relief for the whole family.’
