Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page.

My husband Dick and I have worked closely with the Taxi Charity for many years. I want to fundraise for the charity in memory of Ted Pieri, who passed away in January 2019, aged 92.

Ted was well-known to everyone at the Taxi Charity - apart from joining us for many events and trips over the years, he was also the first person to do a fundraising skydive for us, aged 90.

I will be jumping alongside Anne Parsons - this will be the first ever skydive for the both of us - and Chelsea Pensioner Mike Smith, who will be making his 100th jump!

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the Taxi Charity.

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.
