London Taxi Drivers have always been extremely philanthropic, giving freely of their time and their vehicles to give those less fortunate much-welcomed respite with fun-filled days out by the seaside.
Drivers also work hard throughout the year to raise money for their chosen charity, all of those on the committee’s of Taxi Trade Charities work tirelessly without recompense, taking many days out from work to organise trips and events throughout the year.
