On Monday 3 July, Russ Hall, Gett Head of Driver Operations, collected the first taxi from Verifone prior to the War Disabled Outing to Worthing. Organised by the Taxi Charity for War Veterans, the taxi picked up from the Royal Hospital, Chelsea to join a convoy of over 100 taxis for the trip on 4 July.
Simon Pancutt (pictured left), Head of Engineering, Verifone UK Ltd., handed over the keys to Russ outside the London Operations Centre. “We’ve worked closely with Gett on many projects over the years, so didn’t hesitate when they asked for our help in supporting these important charity activities.”
Russ Hall commented “Gett are delighted that Verifone have supported us in helping these great causes. We like to put drivers first, but it’s good to dedicate time and resources to our extra special passengers too. These outings do that, and help to us to reinforce the glowing reputation of the whole taxi trade. That’s as important now as it’s been at any time in the history of our industry.”
Later this month, Verifone are providing more taxis for Gett to use on the Underprivileged Children's Outing to Southend. Gett have sponsored 50 children on this event which takes place on 12 July.
