Hello again all you taxi troopers! Fast Eddie, your vice president, reporting in with a round-up of events over the last six months. At the time of my last update in January, the committee was still considering our plans for 2016 and nothing was certain. As you are now aware, an awful lot has transpired since then, thanks to the hard work of the committee, the collectors, our taxi drivers and everyone who has contributed to our events throughout the last six months.

A number of Taxi Charity veterans were invited to watch a passing out parade at Hendon College of Policing on Friday 11 March 2016. Veteran Tommy Schaffer had the honour of inspecting the troops at the morning rehearsal parade amd then more of the collectors arrived for a buffet lunch and to watch the main parade.
The reviewing officer was Nick Ferrari from LBC. #hendonpolicecollege #TommySchaffer #NickFerrari
Some of our veterans and committee members made a rather long journey down to the Chalke Valley History Festival in Wiltshire on Saturday 27 June 2015 to support our veteran singing star Danny McCrudden, who was singing with The London Swing Orchestra at the Victory Ball in the evening. The veterans were picked up by our taxi drivers - who as usual volunteered their services - thanks again lads! We left London at 10:00am, headed for the Victoria & Albert pub in Netherhampton,
