We take military veterans on trips in taxis to offer them comfort and enjoyment.

Story

On the morning of June 7th, the volunteer London taxi drivers found that their taxis had been vandalised after being parked overnight in Caen, most of the damage was wiper blades and arms ripped off, but there was other damage too including broken mirrors.
They said "Our mechanics have patched them up as best they can but this mindlessness has spoilt the start of our final day. But WW2 spirit will not let it beat us".

These are owned by the volunteer London licensed taxi drivers that provide their taxis and time for free.

The Taxi Charity has offered to pay the bill, but this is just not right.
Please help to give to the charity that supports our veterans so well in so many ways.

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.
