Members of Soroptimist International Richmond and Dales are celebrating after completing their toilet twinning campaign.

The group has now organised 20 toilet twins across all the categories of organisations required by the Toilet Twinning charity.

The campaign has enabled 20 communities in Asia, Africa and Latin America to receive their first proper toilet facilities.

Catterick, Richmond and Colburn Community Library Trust (CRACCL) has agreed to display the official certificate in Richmond Library on behalf of the club.

Jenny Cathcart, who led the project, has presented the certificate to CRACCL trustee Judith Clark and chair Sue Young.

Jenny said: “This has been a long campaign which had to be put on hold during the pandemic.

“We are very pleased with this achievement — this is a significant contribution to health and safety in these communities.”
