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.
During the Taxi Charity's recent visit to the Netherlands, London cab driver Ian Parsons handed over the role of chairman to fellow cab driver, Brian Heffernan.
Memories of Queen Elizabeth II
“The royal family played a very important part in WWII. The constant messages of support from Buckingham Palace were a light in the darkest days of war. We were so encouraged that the Princess Elizabeth rallied to the cause and enlisted in the military, helping to boost the morale of not only those of us fighting in Europe and beyond but of the British people at home. She has been our Queen for 70 years and the world is now a very different place than when she ascended in 1952. God bless you and thank you for your outstanding devotion and dedication to the Crown, the people of this country and the Commonwealth.”
