Volunteers from London's cab driving force have stepped forward to support the Taxi Charity during the coronavirus pandemic.
The call to action asks that cabbies help by collecting essential shopping or by keeping in touch regularly by phone; a cause they jumped to be involved in.
The charity based in Barnet, North London also delivered cards to all the veterans that it works with, asking them to Keep Calm and Carry On.
The card from The Taxi Charity reads:
We are not making light of the current situation. Far from it! We are still here and don’t want you to suffer in silence.
Should you need any help, or a chat please get in touch.
The card provides the veterans with a list of contact telephone numbers for London cabbies that they can call on for help or for a chat. Ian Parsons, Chairman of the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans, said: "When I asked for additional support from the London Cabbies who volunteer for the Taxi Charity, I was overwhelmed by the response. "The cabbies do so much already but they all wanted to offer more help to ensure that in their time of need our veterans get the care, help and regular contact they need while they are self-isolating." The Taxi Charity has had to put all its fundraising activities on hold due to the coronavirus restrictions so if you can help the charity, please consider donating.
