Twin the Vins

Summer Fields' is raising money for Toilet Twinning - a charity which enables poorer communities to have access to toilets and clean water. They have called it "Twin the Vins"

This week we launched a whole school Art Competition which will challenge the boys to transform a toilet roll tube into a piece of art.  We are delighted and very grateful that George Gompertz, one of our Gappers, and his father, Will Gompertz, the BBC's Arts Editor have kindly agreed to be the judges. There will be prizes for each year group and league points too!

Alongside this, we hope to raise money for Toilet Twinning - a charity which enables poorer communities to have access to toilets & clean water. 2 billion people do not have somewhere safe to go to the toilet!

Just £60 would enable Summer Fields to 'twin' a school toilet helping fund a project in a poor community that will enable families to build a basic toilet, have access to clean water and learn about hygiene – a vital combination that saves lives.

There are 100 toilets at Summer Fields and if we raise £6000 we could twin them all!

Please donate to TWIN the VINS! and help flush away poverty.
