The Integrated Response Team at Crawley Hospital, suggested that instead of doing Secret Santa, the team would donate money to the charity Toilet Twinning.

Toilet Twinning funds the work of international relief and development agency Tearfund which provides clean water, basic sanitation and hygiene education in impoverished communities around the world.

The team have raised the required £60 donation and have chosen to fund a new toilet in Tistung VDC, Nepal.  

Angie Robinson, Senior Care Home Support Nurse said “Toilet twinning not only provides a toilet, but hygiene education to the community so it seemed a very appropriate project for our team. The toilet we have ‘funded’ is in Tistung VDC in Nepal.  The area was struck by two earthquakes in 2015 and around 1,200 homes were completely destroyed, so we’re delighted that we’ve been able to help in a very small way.”

Well done to the team, seen proudly holding their certificate together with a photo of their own ‘twinned toilet’.
