London Taxi Knowledge Examiners Scale New Peaks

18 Jul 2018

 

 

 

Knowledge examiners are normally associated with giving prospective cabbies a hard time have completed a gruelling challenge of their own.

The hardy group, which included six examiners and a dozen Taxi and Private Hire staff members from TfL, successfully scaled four punishing peaks in Wales.

The hike included taking on Pen y Fan – the highest peak in south Wales – and has raised thousands of pounds for some of the trade’s best loved charities.

It was organised by Knowledge of London examiner Jonathan Harvey, who had the idea to raise money for the taxi charities while doing something which would help different departments within TPH collaborate.

Jonathan said: “We’ve raised around £4,000 so far, which is going towards the Children’s Magical Taxi Tour, Albany Taxi Charity, London Taxi Drivers’ Fund for Underprivileged Children, Taxi Charity for Military Veterans, and East London Cabbies’ Outing, but there’s still time to donate and it would be great if we can raise even more money for these wonderful charities.”

SAS soldiers are known to train at Pen y Fan, which is situated in the Brecon Beacons National Park. At 886 metres above sea-level, it is also the highest British peak south of Cadair Idris n Snowdonia. The other three peaks were Corn du, Cribin & Fan Y Big. The taxi team’s training included eight training weekends at Box Hill in Surrey.
