The LTCFC is now celebrating its 91st year of helping special needs and disadvantaged children. We started the year with our annual ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ which was another huge success.
In September 2018 the charity were rebranded by Pentagram, the world’s largest independent design consultancy. The new flexible brand is responsive and friendly and enables the charity to engage with a broader audience.
Brand awareness is paramount and shortly after the rebrand the charity were fortunate to be offered a substantial livery taxi media campaign by Ubiquitous. We now have colourful branded taxis on the streets of London and look forward to many more.
The 2019 date for our 91st trip to Southend-on-Sea is on Tuesday 25 June. If you would like to be a part of this day, when over 250 very deserving children are driven in a convoy by our fantastic volunteer taxi drivers for a fun filled day out at Adventure Island, please get in touch via our Get Involved page.
Whilst we are well known for our trips and outings, our appeals work is the core of the charity.
Our appeals officers work with the rest of the committee to determine our involvement and how we can help.
To date our funds have provided essential medical equipment, technology and recreational aids to truly amazing children.
We have delivered play areas and playgrounds, provided funds for hospice renovations and sourced specialist mobility aids and to do this, we rely heavily on your help.
Get involved in one of the many ways to raise funds for the charity and be a part of the fantastic work we do.
The committee consists entirely of working taxi drivers and any time spent raising money for events is done voluntarily. The members of the committee do not draw any money from the fund and this is how the running costs are kept down to a bare minimum.
The committee has overall responsibility for strategic direction of the charity and its financial overview. They meet every month to plan for future outings and events and during the meeting the appeals received for financial help are reviewed.
The charity is indebted to all its supporters and benefactors and specifically the London taxi drivers who give their time freely taking vulnerable and disadvantaged children and their carers on outings to the seaside, zoos and other venues.
