FLUSH AWAY POVERTY: ONE TOILET AT A TIME

1.7 billion people on this planet still don’t have a safe, clean toilet. 

If you raise £240, you can twin with a school block in Mozambique, Malawi, Nigeria or Tanzania.

Is your school up for a fundraising challenge to help Twin Toilets for children who don’t have access to safe, clean toilets?


A Blue for the Loo Day

Great for: a non-uniform day… it doesn’t require any elaborate costumes!

How about having a Blue for the Loo Day where everyone in the school comes dressed in blue? Ask everyone to donate to wear something (or everything!) blue. You could even order in some blue wigs!


A Soggy Bottoms bake sale

Great for: a break time, or involving parents at the start or end of the day 

Who doesn’t want to eat a poo-emoji cupcake? Or a chocolate log or brownies? We’d love you to hold a toilet-themed bake sale! Our schools fundraising kit includes toilet-themed recipes, printable bunting and a Soggy Bottoms bake sale poster! Everything you need for your event to be flushed with success!

Chicken Poo Bingo

Great for: a class lesson or a whole-school assembly 

Toilet Twinning’s silly sweepstake is back! Can your class guess where Daisy the Chicken will do her do-do? Get everyone to choose a square or two, pay £2 – and then sit back and watch the film to see if you’re the Chicken Poo Bingo winner!

Fun and games

Great for: a class lesson 

Test your toilet knowledge (or at least your ability to guess well) with a multiple-choice toilet-themed quiz!

The Big Squat

Great for: a PE lesson or a playground activity slot with a difference! 

It’s the ultimate class challenge! How many squats can you do before you drop?

Each person in the class could:

  • Squat for two minutes each
  • Compete against each other by doing as many squats as possible in two minutes
  • Hold the squatting position for as long as possible. The last person squatting wins a prize!
  • Divide into relay teams and each person has to do 20 squats. The first team to complete their squats sits down

Don’t forget to squat safely! If you need squatting tips, there are some great guides on YouTube!


Paying-in details

Once your school has completed its fundraising, you can make a BACS transfer to us online (please include your school’s  name as a reference):

Account name    Toilet Twinning
Bank      Barclays
Account     53798860
Sort code     20-00-00

Alternative, you can send a cheque (payable to ‘Toilet Twinning’) to: Toilet Twinning, 1052–1054 Christchurch Road, Bournemouth, Dorset, BH7 6DS.

We won’t automatically send out twinning certificates – so if you want to put Toilet Twinning certificates in your school loos, please get in touch to tell us how many you need and if you want the school name on each of them.

If you raise £240, don’t forget that you can twin with a school block in Mozambique, Malawi, Nigeria or Tanzania  – or a refugee block in Bangladesh. 


Here’s why it matters

For two years, Ruth and her family lived in a squalid refugee camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo without any toilets or water. But then they moved to a different camp: one that has brand-new toilets and showers because they were installed in a project that Toilet Twinning helps fund!

For years, Ruth wasn’t sure she could keep her family alive. ‘Now we can protect ourselves and our children from diseases,’ she says.

If you’d like more ideas or practical advice and support for your school’s fundraising, please get in touch. We’re here to help!
