Axis to make a big splash for charity by cleaning toilets
A caring cleaning company is committing to give every new toilet it maintains this year a thorough cleanse - and a toilet twin. Axis Cleaning & 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.
This invaluable 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. Its commitment represents a significant contribution to Toilet Twinning's work.
Axis Cleaning & Support Services works with a variety of clients, from single office contracts to larger multinational and industrial clients, at about 1,000 locations throughout the UK, and has more than 3,000 staff.
"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," explains Simon Giles, the company's group finance director & COO.
Toilet Twinning CEO Lorraine Kingsley says she is extremely grateful for Axis's support. "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," she remarks.
"It's wonderful that Axis has chosen to acknowledge the importance and value of the toilets it cleans by twinning them. In doing this, the company is enabling others overseas to have facilities that will protect them from disease and help them take a big first step out of poverty."
Axis Cleaning & Support Services was founded nearly 40 years ago, and prides itself on continually developing new working methods and introducing new technologies. Toilet Twinning raises funds to provide proper sanitation, clean water and hygiene education in some of the poorest countries in the world.
In return for a £60 donation, you can twin your toilet with a latrine overseas and receive a certificate with a photo of your 'twin' and its GPS coordinates.
