WWII veteran supports Taxi Charity with art

D-Day veteran, Bill Gladden, supports the Taxi Charity through his lifelong love of painting

Bill Gladden, 96, from Welling in Kent, travels to Normandy and Holland every year with the Taxi Charity, for the annual commemoration services to remember the comrades he lost.

These trips are all provided without charge to the veterans, and to cover the costs, the charity is reliant on donations or grants. For many years, 96-year-old Bill has used his love of painting to raise funds for the charity that means so much to him.

Bill developed what was to be a lifelong love of painting as a child and said, “I have always loved painting. My favourite subjects are horses and dogs, but I will happily paint anything that I am asked to.”
