    Twinning Toilets

      As most student groups fundraise/raise awareness physically on campus, lockdown has been a bit difficult. But it shouldn't be a reason to halt campaigning altogether. Project Earth Society were looking at ideas of what we could do and came across "2.3 billion people in the world don’t have a toilet. Because of this, millions of children fall sick, miss class – and fail their exams. Attendance gets worse when girls start their periods…" Essentially, you sponsor a family's toilet (latrine) by 'Twinning' it with toilets on campus! We think this is definitely something the Students' Union should lead on and encourage the University to support this great cause!
