The London Taxidrivers’ Charity for Children were delighted to hear from John Anderson of the Royal Oak Taxi Centre that they would be the beneficiaries of an Easter Raffle that he was organising.
On the day of the raffle all the drivers there were pleasantly surprised to see a gorgeous ‘Bunny’ selling tickets for the raffle and, unable to hide their excitement at seeing this beautiful ‘Bunny’, they all dug deep into their money bags and bought plenty of tickets. Then, not to be outdone by his daughter Sophie, John appeared in a giant Easter Bunny costume and conducted the raffle. There were dozens of prizes that John had bought, including giant Easter eggs.
After the raffle, John presented LTFUC committee member Gerry Dunn with a magnificent cheque for £640. During the time that John and his family have run the Royal Oak they have raised hundreds of pounds for the LTFUC and in appreciation were recently made Honorary Members of the Fund, which John is very proud of.
Our picture shows John drawing the winning tickets and Sophie holding the box with the hundreds of tickets that John, Sophie and her brother Darren had sold.
On behalf of the Fund we would like to thank the ‘Royal Oak’ and all the drivers who supported them in their Fund raising for London’s underprivileged and disabled children.
