This Easter, the Taxi Charity is delivering chocolate and a card to veterans across the UK
When the Taxi Charity sent its veterans an Easter card and chocolate in 2020, just after the country entered lockdown, little did they know that a year later they would be repeating the gesture due to ongoing Covid restrictions.
Dick Goodwin, vice president of the Taxi Charity, said: "Over the last twelve months it has been very important for the charity to keep in touch with our veterans. We have sent a card every month, delivered a charity newsletter and our volunteers have made regular phone calls as well as taking veterans to hospital appointments, for their COVID vaccinations and collecting shopping. When we delivered last year's Easter card, we could never have imagined that the country would still be facing restrictions twelve months later and that all our planned events would have been cancelled. We know that over the last twelve months these small acts of kindness have combined to make a real difference in reducing feelings of loneliness or social isolation amongst the veterans who make up the Taxi Charity family."
The pertinent sentiment on the Taxi Charity chocolate bar reads:
There is nothing better than a friend unless it's a friend with chocolate.
Happy Easter from your friends at the Taxi Charity.
