Help Lepicol put the Seat Down on Poverty

Lepicol are offering you the unique chance to own a piece of decorative toilet seat art and donate money to charity in the process.  Twenty two ornate toilet seats are being sold for £60 each with the proceeds being split between two charities; Toilet Twinning and Events for Namuwongo.  Toilet Twinning, run by charities Cord and Tearfund, raise funds to provide people in third world countries with safe sanitation, clean water and hygiene education.  Events for Namuwongo transform the lives of the Namuwongo community, a slum of up to 30,000 people in Uganda, to give its inhabitants a brighter future.  The charity tackles issues such as poverty, polluted water and a derelict sanitation system.

The toilet seats will be uploaded to Lepicol’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/lepicol daily from Monday 9th September 2013 where you will have the chance to pick and reserve your favourite seat ahead of camexpo.  The seats will then be on display at the Lepicol stand (number 2215) at camexpo 2013 where the Lepicol team will be inviting you to view them and buy ones still available if you wish.  Among the selection for sale is a fun knitted toilet seat, a beautiful sunset design and a special design from the camexpo team.  Anyone who buys a seat will also receive a Lepicol goodie bag and a Toilet Twinning certificate.

Carsten Holm, Managing Director at Diversified Business Communications UK said: “Events for Namuwongo is a charity which has captured the imagination of the entire events community.  As a result Diversified helps to raise much needed funds and awareness for Namuwongo at all of our events throughout the year.  We are absolutely thrilled that Lepicol has chosen to help this effort through their activity on their stand at this year’s camexpo.”

Lepicol Marketing Executive Lauren Lemmer said: “A toilet seat will make a great addition to a shop display or even make a fun talking point in your living room.  I already have my eye on a couple!”
