TFL's OnRoute magazine recently featured an article about the Taxi Charity and our 70th anniversary party at The Royal Hospital...
On Sunday 7 October, the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans threw a 70th anniversary party at The Royal Hospital, Chelsea to thank London cab drivers for all their hard work.
More than 250 guests including drivers and veterans enjoyed entertainment from singer Beverley Stone, the London Swing Patrol dance group and Joe Lewis.
Vice President, Dick Goodwin said: ‘The event was a lovely way to both thank the wonderful drivers who support us and to celebrate the 70th anniversary of this amazing charity.’
Issue 19 of OnRoute also included an announcement about the passing of Taxi Charity president, Harry Joel:
It was with great sadness that the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans announced the passing of Harry Joel MBE, on 28 October.
Harry served with the Royal Navy before becoming a cabbie and then worked tirelessly for the benefit of veterans.
He was made Honorary Life President of the Taxi Charity in 2006 and will be greatly missed.
