Toilet Twinning Initiative

Holy Trinity Mission Initiative

Following my installation and induction service in August 2017, my father-in-law made two comments about Holy Trinity.

He was very impressed by the warm welcome he received and was impressed that the cloakroom had a toilet that was twinned. He’d never come across the idea before. I was able to explain very simply how it works, because it is a wonderfully simple idea. The following paragraph is from the toilet twinning website, toilettwinning.org

“By donating £60 to twin 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’s location on Google Maps.”

There are church members who have already twinned their toilets and over the coming 12 months I would like to invite as many homes, schools, businesses and leisure places to consider twinning their loos!

If we get over a certain number – Sunningdale can become a Toilet Twinned Village!! I wonder how many we might be able to twin?

This mission activity creates a wonderful opportunity to teach in the schools the benefits of clean water, hygiene and the management of waste, but also creates a way to respond to the biblical instruction to care for those in poverty.
