Soldier’s charity delivers £18,000 boost to the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans

THE Taxi Charity for Military Veterans was delighted to receive an £18,000 grant from ABF The Soldiers’ Charity to fund its programme of special trips and activities.

ABF The Soldiers’ Charity supports partner charities which improve the well-being of armed forces veterans, especially those who are elderly or disabled. 

The £18,000 grant will go towards the Taxi Charity’s 75th-anniversary events including social occasions in the UK as well as trips to Normandy, Belgium and the Netherlands for commemoration services.

Brigadier (Ret’d) Peter Monteith, Chief Operating Officer ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, said:

“We are always keen to support charities that focus on the welfare of veterans and make them feel part of the wider Army family. This year we were only too pleased to help fund the Taxi Charity and its loyal group of volunteer London cabbies, whose work is much appreciated across the veteran community.”

Brian Heffernan, London Licensed cab driver and Chairman of the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans said: 

“As a small charity that is wholly reliant on donations, grants and sponsorship to fund and facilitate our work with veterans, we are very grateful for the support of ABF The Soldiers’ Charity. This grant will be used towards our programme of trips and activities in this our 75th-anniversary year.”
