They are not flush with success yet but Skye’s Minginish Community Hall is getting close to its charity target after twinning…..their toilets!

For the local community – who pride themselves on the luxury conditions of their local loos – are taking part in the Tearfund run Toilet Twinning scheme.

On social media the hall organisers say: “If you have visited the hall recently, you might have seen the posters about our "Toilet Twinning" project.

“Each summer we open our toilets to the public, with Joan and her team keeping them in ocean-going five-star condition. This year we are separately collecting donations to "twin" our luxurious loos with toilets for a school or community in Africa or Asia.

“The international charity Tearfund helps communities to build safe and hygienic toilets to combat basic diseases that we don't even think about here. We are lucky to have such splendid facilities and would like to share our luck with others.”

Through the scheme a £240 donation would sponsor a toilet block for a school or community and Minginish have set themselves a target figure of £500. So far they have collected just over £300 and have until the end of October to raise the rest.

They add: “If you have enjoyed a visit to Minginish Hall in the past, or are not able to visit us but would like to support our toilet twinning project, we have set up an online donations page on BT's MyDonate web site.

“Please feel free to share with friends and visitors. We are excited about reaching our goal and making a real difference to a remote community less fortunate than our own.”
