News from St. John’s, Allestree: Mar 2017
St. John’s Methodist Church Allestree decided as part of our Outreach to get involved in ‘Toilet Twinning’ which could involve all areas of the church and others who use our premises.
Toilet twinning is a simple quirky way to solve a serious problem and save lives. For £60 we can twin one of our own toilets with a latrine half way around the world. £240 you can twin a school block or toilets in a displacement camp.
One very valuable part of the exercise is that girls and women will no longer have to go into the bush to go to the toilet which can be dangerous and very unhygienic.
The concept has captured the imagination of the various groups who are thinking of ways to raise money in a different way e.g. the beavers are planning on using it to work for a badge, and a small mock up toilet is being used by several groups to post their money into.
We have already raised enough to buy 2 toilets and by Easter hopefully will have enough money to buy a block. Your smallest room becomes the proud owner of a certificate, complete with a photo and GPS coordinates so you can look up your twin on Google maps. Family by family, community by community, nation by nation poverty is being flushed away.
