The London Taxi Benevolent Association for the War Disabled is a small charity that was set up in a pub in Fulham in 1948 by a group of London Black Taxi Drivers.
Its mission is to make veterans’ lives more comfortable and enjoyable. The charity is run by volunteers who call on a large network of taxi drivers, all of whom give their time and services for free, whenever they plan a trip. Their annual trip to Worthing is a real highlight in the lives of veterans.
The charity raised £100,000 for the trip to the Netherlands.
