Welcome to the Taxi Charity

The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans was formed in Fulham in 1948.

We offer international trips to Holland, Belgium and France, day trips to concerts or museums, transport to attend fundraising events, as well as special days out to catch up with friends and comrades.

To fund and facilitate these outings, the charity is wholly reliant on donations from members of the public, businesses and trusts and the amazing group of London taxi drivers who volunteer their time and vehicles so willingly.

Taxi Charity receives Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service

The Taxi Charity is thrilled to have been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service - the MBE for volunteer groups - which is awarded for life.

"This is a very proud moment for the Taxi Charity and the London black cab trade. The COVID pandemic has been a uniquely challenging period and I’m glad our response provided comfort to our veterans, especially those living alone and feeling isolated. I would like to thank all our volunteers who have worked so hard and whose efforts helped us win this prestigious award."

- Ian Parsons, Chairman
