Church toilet to help raise funds
All Saints, Shepreth
The new toilet and baby changing area cost 25,000
A three-year-old girl baptised in a 13th century church is to launch a fundraising appeal by opening a toilet.

Parish officials said the toilet and baby changing unit, which cost 25,000, would bring All Saints' Church, Shepreth, into the 21st century.

Eloise Quantrill, who lives near the church, will tear down a ribbon of pink toilet paper to formally declare the facilities open on 2 December.

The "Spend A Penny" appeal is to try to recoup the toilet building costs.

"The creation of the extension has a serious side and will bring a medieval church into the new millennium," said vicar, the Rev Christopher Strong.
