Taxi Charity receives £15,000 grant from the Veterans' Foundation

The Taxi Charity is delighted to announce that our application to the Veterans' Foundation for a grant to support our work has been successful.


As a small niche charity that is wholly reliant on donations, major grants such as this £15,000 from the Veterans' Foundation are so important to ensure our work can continue.


We applied for financial support to help with events that are planned to celebrate our 75th anniversary and are thrilled to have been awarded an unrestricted grant from the Veterans' Foundation which will be used to help with the costs of the trip to Normandy for the D-Day commemorations.


The Veterans Foundation was set up to help fund charities and other charitable organisations that are helping serving and former members of the Armed Forces and their dependents who are in need.


Brian Heffernan, London cab driver and chairman of the Taxi Charity, said: "We are so thrilled to receive this grant from the Veterans' Foundation. Every charity is facing the after effects of the pandemic and the escalating cost of living crisis, and knowing that we have received this funding which we will use towards the costs of our trip to Normandy in June for the D-Day commemorations is a huge relief and we can not thank them enough."
