Axis Cleaning commits to toilet provision in poorest countries

Axis is committing to give every new toilet we clean this year a thorough cleanse - and a toilet twin.

Axis Cleaning and Support Services is to ‘twin' every toilet in every new contract it wins this year with a latrine overseas - through the charity campaign Toilet Twinning. Its support will sponsor the building of household toilets in some of the poorest countries in the world, as well as helping to fund clean water and hygiene education.

"People are at the heart of our business so we are delighted to have committed to twin every toilet we will be contracted to clean from the beginning of 2018 to support the Toilet Twinning cause and help improve the lives of others around the globe," said Simon Giles, group finance director and coo for Axis Cleaning & Support Services.

Toilet Twinning CEO Lorraine Kingsley commented: "It's shocking to think that 2.3 billion people worldwide still don't have access to a safe, clean toilet - while here, in the UK, we tend to take our toilets for granted."
