Record numbers entering the Loo of the Year Awards

Despite in excess of 40% of the UK’s public toilets closing down in the past 10 years, the Loo of the Year Awards is still going strong and is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year - and the awards are receiving record entries for the 2012 event. The awards are promoted by The British Toilet Association and, this year, in association with headline sponsor Lepicol, a probiotic formulation specifically developed to help maintain healthy bowels - naturally.

“This year we are welcoming millions of visitors into the UK for events such as the diamond jubilee and the Olympics, yet there is only one public toilet for every 19,500 of the population in London, excluding visitors,” said Mike Bone, managing director of the awards programme. “The Loo of the year awards recognises those toilets still open and the people who still have pride in their loos. Despite record numbers of toilets closing we are delighted to be receiving record numbers of entries into the awards, which this year will be bigger and better to celebrate our 25th anniversary.”

Trophies for the very best entries will be presented at a special 25th Anniversary awards presentation event to be held on Friday 7 December at the St Johns Hotel in Solihull. Dr Hilary Jones, who is working alongside headline sponsor Lepicol in 2012 to help educate on the importance of bowel health, will be presenting some of the winners with their awards.
