In the winter edition of the Tardis Times last month, we mentioned we’d be attending the Sparkles & Suits WaterAid Ball on 28th January, hosted by our friends at South Staffs Water.
The event at the Hilton St. George’s Park was an overwhelming success, raising almost £44,000 for WaterAid and beating the previous year’s total of £25,000 and incidentally, the charity Tardis also proudly sponsors.
This significant sum of money will support the three year project in Central Madagascar that will reach over 35,000 people providing safe water and upwards of 8,800 people with improved sanitation and hygiene.
A particular highlight of the evening was our own Chris Boydon winning a signed Wolves shirt in the auction much to his delight as a life long Wolves fan.

Our portable toilet service stars certainly find themselves in some odd locations when it comes to looking after the portable toilet units we have on hire.
None more unusual one rainy Wednesday over in Birmingham recently when we visited a construction site to conduct the weekly service.
“Where’s the second toilet”? enquired Gary, the Tardis service driver.
Look up came the reply as the Tardis toilet descended from the top floor of the office block under construction and gently alighted by our side.
It’s a couple of months to April fools day, but we kid you not. This Tardis toilet really does fly and it doesn’t need jet propulsion.
People working on this construction project need access to toilet facilities all those floors up, so the solution is a special frame for the toilet and a very cooperative crane driver to hoist it down to ground level for cleaning.
As we said, it was a filthy day weather wise, but we did manage to capture the toilet going up in the world, being returned to its resting place up there in the clouds. See the video.
