2023 will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans, a remarkable milestone for a small, niche charity peopled by enthusiastic volunteers.

Founded by three London cab drivers in 1948 whilst sitting in the Bedford Arms in Fulham, no one could have foreseen that it would develop into such a key part of many veterans' and cab drivers' lives.

It would have been beyond anyone's imaginings that drivers would be taking veterans abroad to the Netherlands, France, Belgium and even Germany for acts of commemoration, and the instigators would have been proud to know how highly valued the charity has become, not only by the veterans, but by other larger charities such as the Royal Naval and Royal Marines Charity, The Soldiers' Charity, (formerly the Army Benevolent Fund), the RAF Benevolent Fund, Blind Veterans UK and many many more.

Our charity relies heavily on donations and we plan to mark our special anniversary with events for veterans of all ages throughout 2023.

Please help us to raise £75,000 in our 75th anniversary year.

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.
