Charity initiative to ‘twin’ toilets

Axis Cleaning and Support Services has ‘twinned’ toilets in three UK shopping centres with schools in Uganda, as part of a campaign to help provide water and sanitation overseas. For each toilet in the UK ‘twinned’ through the Toilet Twinning initiative, a new toilet is built in an impoverished community. Axis Cleaning has committed to twin toilets in each venue where it wins new contracts this year - and has also twinned toilets in venues where it has worked for some time.

Simon Giles, COO of Axis Cleaning and Support Services, said: “People are at the heart of our business. It is therefore important for us as a company to ensure we engage in relevant projects and initiatives that support communities that need help. With our experience across a number of sectors, especially shopping centres, we are well placed to partner with Toilet Twinning, and I am grateful to Houndshill, New Square and Mercury Shopping Centres for helping us to support the initiative. We are committed to twin every new toilet we maintain this year.”
