London Taxi Drivers' Charity for Children
Our history is built on the yearly outings we provide for the children and our fundraising activities which support the many appeals we receive for help. Our committee is entirely voluntary, ensuring that all donations go straight to the good work that we perform.
We are well known for our outings to the seaside when convoys of London taxis decked in balloons and banners take excited children and their helpers for a fun day out. We also organise and hold exciting events for children including trips to the theatre and christmas parties.
Yet our work is so much more. We deal with many appeals to help children. Our volunteers fundraise through donations, sponsorship, support and social events including dinner dances, raffles and film premieres which allows us to continue our important work in assisting children in need of help.
Throughout our 90 year history we have assisted with many appeals providing essential funding for the purchase of recreational, technology and mobility equipment for children, schools and hospices and we rely on your generosity to do it.
We are honoured and privileged to have Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall as our Patron.
Notes of Thanks
On behalf of everyone at Ab Phab Youth Club, we wanted to say a big thank you for the opportunity to attend the tea party again this year. The young people thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Best wishes.
Thank you for inviting us to the 2018 Mad Hatters Tea Party on Sunday. It was a fantastic day as always. The staff and children really enjoyed it and haven't stopped talking about it.
Thank you for the lovely day we had at Southend-on-Sea. The children, staff and parents all had a wonderful time. We all had fantastic drivers who looked out for us. Please pass on our thanks and appreciation for the amount you all did.
Our humble beginnings can be traced back to 1928. That first taxi outing became the start of a custom, which has since become a famous sight to behold in London each year.
We are proud that our evolution has been built on the dedication of the volunteer committee, the volunteering of the hundreds of London taxi drivers who drive at our outings and events and the kindness of your donations and support.
Effective management of donations, no salaries taken, no dividends paid ensures that your donations are maximised and your kindhearted generosity ensures our continued success.

Praise for the LTCFC
A wonderful children's party. Well done! The Pearly Kings & Queens Society take great pride in being invited to your terrific event. Lots of love.
My boy Harry has autism and is in UCH hospital having an operation on his arm. He has been using the Sensory Room provided by your charity. I just wanted to send my personal thanks to you and all involved.
Since 1928, the London Taxi Drivers’ Charity for Children has taken thousands of disadvantaged children on day trips to many different destinations and our funds have helped improve many children's lives.
We thank everyone who has helped us along the way. There are amazing people and organisations who have helped us to raise funds and spread the word of the fantastic work we do.
We simply could not do this without your help and generosity and for that we are eternally grateful. Please do not stop.
Donations are the lifeblood of our charity and there are many different ways you can get involved and support us. Please help us make children's lives better.
