The Taxi Charity for Military Veterans were presented with the prestigious Queens Award for Voluntary Service at Westminster Abbey this week.


On behalf of Her Majesty The Queen, The Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London, Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE officially presented the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service to fifteen voluntary groups including the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans.

Taxi Charity volunteers Ian Parsons and Dick Goodwin, attended an Honours and Awards Presentation at Westminster Abbey to officially receive the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service (QAVS).

The Taxi Charity had been notified on 2 June that it had been awarded the QAVS, the highest prize given to local volunteer groups and widely regarded as the equivalent of an MBE for volunteers.

Ian Parsons, London Cabbie and Chairman, Taxi Charity for Military Veterans, said: “This morning’s Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service presentation at Westminster Abbey was a very proud moment for our charity and trade.

“As a London cabbie, I was deeply honoured to receive the Award on behalf of the Taxi Charity for Military Veterans. I am fully aware it is thanks to the efforts of all those who have supported our wonderful charity since its modest beginnings in 1948 which made this possible, and I would like to take the opportunity today to pay tribute to all concerned.”
