A convoy of 100 balloon decorated London taxis came to Southend with 300 deserving children. The fantastic smiles on the faces of excited children tells its own story.
The London Taxi Drivers’ Fund for Underprivileged Children brought the children on the annual outing, which took them first along the seafront, before enjoying the afternoon at Adventure Island.
The kids and drivers also got to enjoy a lunch and disco at the Cliffs Oavillion in Westcliff where they were met by the mayor.
The children were brought in brightly coloured taxis, for many of these kids it was their their first visit the seaside, as well as their first ever ride in a taxi.
Founded in 1928, the charity is well known for its outings to the seaside, when convoys of London taxis decked in balloons and banners take excited children and their helpers for an amazing fun day out
