World Toilet Day
19th November 2014

It's World Toilet Day today, and it's not as silly as it sounds.

It is an event which raises funds and awareness for the 2.5 billion people on the planet who can't access a clean toilet.

The day aims to put a spotlight on the urgency needed to end poor sanitation across the world, especially when it comes to women and girls who are parlicularly vunerable.

One event in the capital that is raising money for the cause, and doing it with their tounges firmly placed in their cheeks is the World Toilet Day comedy and disco night, which aptly being held at The Convenience which used to be a public loo.

Dan Freedman was there, and spoke to comedian Ross Brierley.


Wateraid's Hannah Wilkinson told us more.
