Toilet twinning

During 2014 we're raising funds for the charity Toilet Twinning. The charity is a partnership between development agencies Cord and Tearfund to raise funds to help provide access to better sanitation, clean water and hygiene education.  For £60 people can twin a toilet at home, work or school with a latrine in a variety of countries overseas, enabling people living in poor communities to have clean water, a decent toilet, and better hygiene. Together, these make a vital difference to preventing the spread of disease and reducing child mortality. Women and girls suffer most from the lack of good sanitation - girls often miss out on education because of it. The exact location of the twin latrine can be pinpointed using Google maps.

The Toilet twinning website gives fuller information.  

How can you help?

In our villages, you will find a toilet pan outside each of the churches as a reminder of our fundraising effort. Here's some of what we're doing to raise funds:
