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 twinning toilets for every venue where it wins new contracts this year, and has also extended its commitment to venues where it has worked for some time.


Through Axis’ donations, visitors to the toilets in Mercury Shopping Centre in Romford will now see certificates showing their Ugandan twins. This will also apply at Blackpool’s Houndshill Shopping Centre, where Axis employs 20 security and cleaning operatives who support the centre’s customer services accreditation as a WorldHost-recognised destination.


Twinned toilets can also be visited at the New Square Shopping Centre in West Bromwich where Axis has provided a team of ten full-time cleaners and supervisors for the last five years.


Toilet Twinning raises funds to provide clean water, proper sanitation, and hygiene training in some of the poorest communities in Africa, Latin America and Asia. According to the World Health Organisation, one in three people worldwide still do not have access to a clean and safe toilet facility.


Simon Giles, the COO of Axis Cleaning and Support Services, says Axis is in an excellent position to support the charity’s worthwhile cause:

“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 Centre for helping us to support the initiative. We are committed to twin every new toilet we maintain this year.”
