On Sunday 22 January 2017, the Taxi Charity held an informal launch event for its Back To The Beaches veterans' trip to Normandy.
We are aiming to raise enough money to take 250 veterans back to the Normandy beaches in 90 taxis in June 2017.
The veterans who attended were served a lunch of beef stew and apple pie, with music from the 1940s providing the atmosphere.
Sally O’Connor, who runs the Spitfire Cafe in Biggin Hill and helped to organise the event, said: “It was an amazing day. There were over 60 veterans from all over London, Kent and West Sussex."
