Press photo call at Wellington Barracks on 12 February 2017

Back To The Beaches

The Taxi Charity will be holding a photo call for photographers, film crews and reporters at Wellington Barracks on Sunday 12 February 2017.

When: Sunday 12 February 2017 12 noon – 1pm

Where: Wellington Barracks, Birdcage Walk, London SW1E 6HQ

What: 25 nonagenarians who are supported by the Taxi Charity For Military Veterans plus London black cabs and 12 guardsmen selected from the Welsh, Coldstream, Scots, Irish and Grenadier Guards inside the Wellington Barracks (across from Buckingham Palace)

Why: Launching the Taxi Charity’s final trip Back to the Beaches of Northern France with war heroes from WWII. With veterans who saw active service now in their 90s, sadly the number who are fit and able enough to travel is declining each year and this will be the final trip, accommodating up to 150 veterans plus a family member or carer.

How: War veterans and taxi drivers will be available for photographs and interviews. Photographers/ film crews/ reporters welcome by invitation.

Please email or call 07825 568244 for a pass into the barracks.
