Johnny Gallagher

Taxi Charity Ambassador

London based entrepreneur and businessman, Johnny Gallagher, became a Taxi Charity ambassador in March 2023.


Johnny is a great supporter of the charity and really enjoys meeting the veterans and hearing their stories. In 2022, he very generously paid for the charity’s Christmas party.


In 2023, Johnny paid for an event at the Heritage Hangar at Biggin Hill for WWII veterans. During the event Chelsea Pensioner Mike Smith could not believe it when he heard that Johnny had paid for him to go up in a Spitfire.

At the 2023 Christmas party, Johnny surprised guests with two poems he had commissioned from Irish poet and painter, John Armstrong, who attended to read the poems to the 250 guests.

Growing up in Essex with a single mum and a sister, Johnny had his first part-time job aged 16 and left school at 18 to join a drainage company where he worked 12 hours a day for £50.


He went on to start five businesses and after multiple failures had a breakthrough and made his first million pounds when he was 23. Johnny owns the leading UK vitamin company, Starpowa.
