minicabit, the innovative private hire vehicle (PHV) comparison service, has partnered with NHS Charities Together to celebrate 75 years of the National Health Service (NHS) and honor its extraordinary workforce through the 'Fares that Care' campaign.
Running from this week until 9 July 2023, coinciding with the NHS's birthday week, minicabit will donate £1 to NHS Charities Together for every cab ride booked through its website, app, and partner channels that is completed during the campaign.
This campaign marks minicabit's continued support for the NHS, including its noteworthy efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic. When public transport faced restrictions, minicabit raised over £250,000 to provide free cab trips for NHS staff, ensuring their timely arrival on the frontline. Additionally, last winter, the company launched the first 'Fares that Care' campaign, supporting NHS Charities Together to assist NHS staff and communities facing hardships.
As the NHS celebrates its 75th birthday, NHS Charities Together pays homage to the service and its dedicated workforce, acknowledging the significant role charitable giving has played throughout its history. From groundbreaking innovations and research to life-changing patient support and providing assistance during the COVID-19 crisis, charitable contributions have been instrumental in supporting the NHS and its services.
The 'Fares that Care' campaign by minicabit ensures that every cab ride booked contributes not only to the convenience of travelers but also to the wellbeing of NHS Charities Together, enabling them to continue their vital work of supporting the NHS and its staff.
Amer Hasan, Chief Executive of minicabit, said: “We’re excited to support NHS Charities Together on this momentous occasion for the NHS. We know that NHS staff and their communities still face challenges and are in need of support.”
“As customers book their cabs for their airport transfers, staycations and summer festivals, we’re happy to donate from our revenues to this worthy cause.”
The minicabit team hopes that many booking their cab trips this summer in over 550 towns and cities around the UK will take advantage of its ’Fares that Care’ offer which will help celebrate the NHS and the vital work they do.
