Ice Bucket challenge, Magical Taxi Tour.



I've been nominated by my friend and fellow Taxi driver, Paul Morgan, to do an Ice Bucket challenge. 

I have decided to take the opportunity to raise awareness and perhaps some funds, towards the magnificent Magical Taxi Tour. Not wanting to take anything away from the ALS charity, I will also make a donation to them.

Magical Taxi Tour
Although they have managed to exceed their target for this year, it's a dynamic ongoing event. All donations recieved will help secure this wonderful experience for many others to enjoy on future trips. 

I also get to nominate three others to take on the ice bucket challenge: 
After much deliberation I have decided to nominate fellow Taxi drivers, Mark White, Glen Alutto and Steve Brown (The Parrot).

More about the Magical Taxi Tour:  
Follow on FaceBook, The Children's Magical Tour for Seriously ill children, as they head to Paris Disneyland via P&O Ferries from Dover in a fleet of London Taxis.

This year once again the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, have organised the three-day trip of a lifetime to Disneyland Paris for children with life threatening diseases. 

A convoy of over 100 London taxis, will be escorted by Police from both London and Paris, London Ambulance Service and AA also assist throughout the trip. 

Putting "Kids in Cabs" is the mission and this annual event is only possible with your continued help and support, along with sponsors who generously donate towards the £1250 per taxi necessary to meet the expense, such as Hotel, fuel, food, admission charges etc. 

As a result of your donations, this tour has brought moments of great joy and happiness to many unfortunate families. Some of the children who went on the last trip won't be going this time. We are filled with sadness that some of these children have died, but with your help we are determined to keep on giving even more children this once in a lifetime opportunity.

Please consider working an extra hour over this bank holiday weekend, for the children.

Not recommendedf for those with a heart condition or undiagnosed heart condition.. The shock of the cold could trigger an attack.

Take a chance, if you have an 'undiagnosed' condition that's everyone that does not have a diagnosed one.

If Mark White takes part can the bucket remain on his head, we must remember kids visit this blog too.
