The long awaited day has arrived. Wednesday, 1st July, over 100 Taxi drivers will be giving up their days work, to take these kids on a trip to the seaside.
In a convoy of over 100 balloon decorated taxis, 300 deserving children, some of whom have never actually seen the sea before (most of whom have never been in a taxi), will be taken on the annual legendary outing to Southend on Sea.
The trip organised by volunteers for the London Taxi Drivers Fund for Underprivileged Children.
A big thank you to all the wonderful drivers for giving up a days work to make this outing happen and also thanks to the many helpers, face painters, balloonists, clowns and characters.
Grateful thanks must go to Sainsbury's (Low Hall) Chingford for making the LTFUC their charity of the year and for all the help and support they have given to make this special day a success.
Thanks also to the management and staff at the Cliffs Pavilion, Adventure Island and all the wonderful sponsors (without whom this day would not be possible).
