A taxi driver is raising cash to send sick children on the trip of a lifetime to Disneyland in Paris.

Greg Smith from North Chingford is holding a raffle in aid of Magical Taxi Tour, a charity that sends seriously ill children on an all-expenses paid holiday.

Greg, who is captain of Brentwood Golf Club in Essex said: “I am a taxi driver so it is a cause close to my heart.”

Tickets cost £1 and will be on sale in Costa in Station Road in Chingford from 9am until 4pm on Saturday (July 2).

Prizes include a three course meal at Mamma Mia restaurant in Chingford and a £25 voucher for J and N menswear in Chingford.

The Essex-based charity Magical Taxi Tour will send 200 children in a convoy of taxis to Paris for a three-day holiday September.

Greg will be one of 100 taxi drivers who volunteer their time to make the trip across the Channel.

It costs £1,400 per child to cover all costs including hotel, food, fuel and admission charges.

Brentwood Golf Club will host a golf day on July 19 to raise money for the same charity.
