Fylde Soroptimists are forging ahead with their “80 for 80” Toilet Twinning project and are well on their way to securing the twinning of 80 toilets within the Fylde Borough. This means that £4,800 will go towards the provision of sanitation and hygiene education in places such as Nepal, Cambodia and some African countries where conditions are particularly dangerous to health, which, in turn, will enable better education for the children in these areas.
They have been supported in the project by Mark Menzies, MP, Fylde Borough Council, Lytham Hall, Freckleton Social Club, No. 10 Ale House, the Glendower Hotel and St Annes Parish Church – all of whom have twinned their toilets.
Fylde Soroptimists are also working in close contact with the pupils at AKS and they have been doing some amazing fundraising activities, resulting in the twinning of eleven toilets at the last count. The School are forming a Junior Soroptimists Club and it is hoped that this Club will be chartered at the end of January.
The Fylde Soroptimists are now aiming for one major push with their project before their 80th anniversary celebrations in April and will be contacting local businesses to see if they wish to support their project and help make Lytham and St Annes become “toilet twinned” towns. If anyone is interested in supporting this project, please contact the Club secretary on email@example.com.
