Create Bathroom and Kitchen studio paid a £60 donation to twin its showroom with a toilet in developing countries.

Director of Create Bathroom and Kitchen Studio, Kenneth Thom, said: “/2.5 billion people, 40% of the world’s population, don’t have somewhere safe, clean and hygienic to go to the loo. The human impact of this is enormous: nearly one in five child deaths each year is due to diarrhoea.

“We were really inspired to commit to this charity when we installed a new bathroom for clients of ours who twinned their new bathroom.”
