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.
Find out more about our annual Worthing outing and other ways we help the war disabled and veterans.
Find out about volunteering your time as a taxi driver or ex-services donations collector.
Please make a donation today to help towards our veterans trips in the UK, France, Belgium and Holland.
You can fundraise for the Taxi Charity via Virgin Money Giving, justgiving or by organising your own collection.
Taxi Charity escort veterans to Airborne Wandeltocht 2019
After a yearlong epic fundraising challenge to lose weight and get fit, before attempting the gruelling ascent of Kilimanjaro, three London cabbies, Daren Parr, John Dillane and Brian Heffernan, presented a cheque for £18,000 to the Taxi Charity.
In September 2019, after a year training for the challenge and shedding almost 12 stones between them, John and Daren reached the summit after a six-day climb - sadly Brian was turned back by the medical team on the final day of the ascent.
On 5 December at the Taxi Charity's annual Christmas lunch, the three proud London cabbies presented a cheque for £18,000 to the charity to support the work it does with veterans from all conflicts.
