LTCFC 2023 Outing to Paradise Wildlife Park

Film & Campaign Description

Have you ever been fortunate enough to witness a spectacle of over 100 taxis adorned with balloons, parading on the motorway towards Southend? It's a heartwarming sight, and it's all for a good cause. For nearly a century, 'The London Taxi Drivers Charity For Children' has been dedicated to helping children in need. Our annual trips to the seaside are just one of the many ways in which we support these kids. Additionally, we organize various exciting events and tirelessly raise funds to fulfill the numerous appeals we receive. What makes our charity even more special is that our committee and team of volunteers are practically all London Taxi Drivers. We selflessly give our time and effort to make these trips happen, thanks to the generous donations from individuals like yourself.

A fun fact about the LTCFC 

- Our overall expenses are one of the lowest of any registered charity, mainly because none of the committee receive any payment for their work or time. Something we are very proud of.

London Taxi Drivers Charity For Children

Our charity has a rich history that dates back to 1928, boasting an impressive 96-year legacy of caring for children in need. One of our core activities involves organizing annual outings for special needs and disadvantaged children. These outings offer a unique opportunity for the children to enjoy fun-filled days out, often to the seaside, accompanied by their dedicated carers. To ensure safe and convenient travel, volunteer London licensed taxi drivers generously transport the children to their desired destinations.

But our charity's efforts extend far beyond these memorable trips. We are also renowned for organizing exciting events, such as festive Christmas parties, which bring joy to the children's lives. Additionally, our committee tirelessly works to support numerous appeals aimed at helping children. Thanks to the unwavering commitment of our dedicated volunteers and supporters, we can raise vital funds through sponsored events. This financial support enables us to continue our crucial mission of assisting children.

Throughout our extensive history, we have played a pivotal role in many appeals, providing essential funding for recreational, technology, and mobility equipment. This equipment ensures that children can access the resources they need to thrive. With every donation passing directly to the good work we perform, our charity remains dedicated to making a positive and lasting impact on the lives of children in need.
