Britannia Taxis, a private hire operator based in Liverpool, is making an impact on the local community through the Funded by Veezu programme.


As a key player in Veezu, the UK’s fastest growing private hire technology platform, Britannia is focusing on supporting youth initiatives at Tribe Dance School and Brins Gym.

Founded by Becky Middleton in September 2023, Tribe Dance School offers a variety of dance classes for children aged 2-11 and an adult dance class at Roby Community Centre. Britannia Taxis has contributed £800 to fund these classes for children from low-income families and is sponsoring a young dancer to attend classes for free.


In addition, Britannia Taxis has donated £1,000 to Brins Gym, a boxing club that supports young people at risk of antisocial behaviour. This donation will help purchase new kits for the gym’s 50th anniversary.


The company also sponsored Brins Gym’s anniversary boxing show held at Rainhill Ex-Services Club on 19 April, bringing together young boxers from across the Northwest.

Becky Middleton said: “We’re so grateful to Britannia for their support, allowing children from all backgrounds to be able to participate in dance.

 

“I set up this school after running another class with a friend for over 10 years, before her passing last year. Lots of people reached out with fond memories and great experiences of the class, so I set up Tribe in honour of her and with the hope to help more children grow and develop. Britannia’s kind donation will ensure that nobody is left out.”


Andrew Robinson, Coach at Brins Gym and Veezu driver-partner, said: “We are incredibly grateful to Veezu for its ongoing support at such an exciting time for us. Our gym is an important place for so many people as our number one priority is to empower disadvantaged children and keep them on track.

 

“The best part of running the gym is witnessing how many people we have been able to welcome over the last 50 years, and the difference it has made in the community. With Veezu’s support, our event was a huge success, and the future for Brins Gym looks very bright.”

 

Rosanna Hynes, Hyperlocal Marketing Manager for Britannia Taxis, said: “Being a local provider, supporting our local community is at the heart of what we do. Both groups do life-changing work in supporting disadvantaged young people and have incredible stories to tell; it’s a privilege to lend our support wherever we can. We are very much looking forward to what the future holds for both these organisations.”
