“A Once in a Lifetime Trip which they will never forget”
One of London’s most unique charity events takes place each year when a convoy of licensed London taxis take over 200 children, suffering from a range of chronic debilitating illnesses and life limiting conditions, on a three-day trip of a lifetime to Disney® Paris. This Magical Taxi Tour has bought moments of great joy and happiness to sick children. You can read about Danielle who was one of them on this website.
This amazing convoy, can be over three miles long when running and consists of 90 plus taxis, City of London Police escorts, Gendarmerie Nationale, London Ambulance NHS Trust vehicles and AA breakdown trucks.
Organised annually, by the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, this event is only possible with the help of our sponsors who generously give toward the £1,400 per taxi necessary to meet the expenses of hotel, fuel, food, admission charges etc. The taxi drivers naturally give freely of their time and use of their vehicles.
We are filled with sadness that some of these youngsters have since died, but with your help we are determined to give more children this once in a lifetime opportunity.
