Taxi drivers wanted for The Albany Charity Fund childrens day out

The Albany Taxi Charity Fund is a licensed taxi drivers fund for children with special needs.

Formed in 1972 by a group of licensed London taxi drivers, the Charity has been going ever since. Their aim was to take special needs children for a day out at the seaside for some fun and laughter. 

The first event started as a one off to Margate with 72 children and 36 brightly decorated cabs.  These Taxi Drivers started to meet regularly at premises in the Albany Road, hence the name of the charity. 

Over the coming years more and more taxi drivers joined in. The Charity decided that there could be two trips a year, one to Margate, another to Hastings.

In 1992 the first trip to Hastings was organised by Bob Baylis, Gina Sexton and George Payne and the 1066 L.V.A. Publicans who raise funds at their pubs throughout the year, and now sponsor this event.

Over the years the Albany Charity have taken children with special needs and their carers to venues such as Thorpe Park, Chessington, as well as  visits to Pantomimes. 

The Albany Charity have also bought televisions, music systems, sound equipment, karaoke machines, trikes, wheelchairs and special bikes for schools which cater for children with special needs.

The Albany Charity  have organised their latest outing for the children, a trip to Hastings will take place on Monday, June 10, 2019. 

Drivers will be assembling at Charlton Athletic Football Stadium, Floyd Road, SE7 8BL, at 7am, where they will be furnished with the necessary equipment to decorate their cabs. It is anticipated that a the convoy of taxis will leave the stadium at approximately 9am.

The organisers of the outing are still looking for drivers to fill 7 available slots. Further information can be obtained by contacting Ray Ali on 07779798872 or Steve Vernon on 07866423851
