Lepicol goes Potty to Raise Money for Charity!

An impressive £600 was raised, with Probiotics International Ltd (manufacturers of Lepicol) matching the donation, resulting in massive £1200 being split between charities; Toilet Twinning and Camexpo’s chosen charity, 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.

 

Lorraine Kingsley, Chief Executive of Toilet Twinning commented: ‘We love the unique idea Lepicol adopted to raise money for Toilet Twinning. We would like to thank everyone who bought a toilet seat for their kind donation’.
