The 80th anniversary of D-Day will be commemorated in 2024 and the Taxi Charity is delighted to have received a donation of £10,000 from the Wates Foundation towards the cost of our 2024 trip to Normandy.
Rebecca Ray, from the Wates Foundation, said: "The Wates Foundation are delighted to be supporting the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans’ 2024 trip to Normandy for the 80th Anniversary of the D-Day landings."
Joining our volunteer cab drivers for the 80th anniversary D-Day commemorations next year in Normandy will be veterans, not only from WWII, but from other conflicts.
Dick Goodwin, Honorary Secretary of the Taxi Charity, said: "There are no costs to the veterans or their carers who join us on our trips - we fund these entirely from donations and grants. We are very grateful to the Wates Foundation for their generous donation."
