Colin has been a volunteer for the Taxi Charity since 2019 and has helped the charity at events across the UK and taken veterans to the Netherlands and Normandy for acts of commemoration.

The Hadrian's Wall path in the north of England runs for 84 miles, from Bowness-on-Solway on the west coast to Wallsend on the east coast of England. Colin will be joined by his two brothers, Tony and David, and is using the walk to celebrate his 60th birthday and to raise funds for a cause that is very close to his heart.

Colin said: "2023 is the 75th anniversary of the Taxi Charity and having seen first hand the fabulous support they give to veterans, I want to raise some money for them. I know everyone is facing escalating costs during the current cost-of-living crisis but anything you can give, however small, will make a difference."

About the charity

The Taxi Charity For Military Veterans (formerly known as the London Taxi Benevolent Association For War Disabled) was formed in Fulham in 1948. Its object then was to help war veterans, in their homes and hospitals, throughout London and the home counties, by providing entertainment, outings and much needed specialised equipment. Our aim now is simple: to work for the benefit, comfort and enjoyment of military veterans, to the best of our ability. For our annual Worthing outing, we now collect veterans from all over London, including the Royal Hospital Chelsea and other Veterans' Homes, as well as those who still live in their own homes. This amounts to over 300 ex-service men and women and over 130 taxis. In order to fund these outings, we seek donations from the general public and organisations, and we rely on volunteer London licensed taxi drivers to provide their taxis and time for free.
