Please help support this fundraiser!
Katie Simmonds who runs the Russell Square Cabmen’s Shelter will be holding another fundraiser to help raise money for the London Taxi Drivers’ Charity for Children (LTCFC) on Thursday 6 June 2019.
It was in this actual Cabmen’s Shelter that the charity began back in 1928. It was originally located in Leicester Square, before being moved to Russell Square where it now proudly stands.
All food and drinks served on the day can be purchased by way of donation and there will be some great raffle prizes up for grabs.
The charity are kindly being assisted by a team of volunteer London taxi drivers who will be fundraising on the day by collecting donations and donating their tips for the day. Taxi drivers will be able to collect A5 posters (to display in their cabs) and collection tins from the Russell Square cabmen’s shelter from Monday 20 May. What are the LTCFC fundraising for? The LTCFC are raising money for the 2019 Southend-on-Sea outing, where they take over 250 special needs and disadvantaged children to the seaside for the day. Their goal is to raise £3,000 through this fundraiser. For many of the children it will be the first time they had been in a London taxi, seen the sea and all the rides in Adventure Island. If you would like to help us raise raise £3,000, you can donate online to their Russell Square cabmen’s shelter fundraiser.
