THE CHILDREN’S MAGICAL TAXI TOUR
Every year a convoy of licensed London taxis takes over 200 children, suffering from a range of chronic debilitating illnesses and life-limiting conditions, on a three-day trip of a lifetime to Disneyland in Paris. This Magical Taxi Tour, a unique charity event, has brought moments of great joy and happiness to sick children and their families.
Organised annually by the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, dedicated taxi drivers freely give their time and the use of their vehicles. Sponsors give generously to cover the expenses of the trip. For some youngsters, the Magical Taxi Tour could be one of their last adventures, a once in a lifetime opportunity. But the tour is not just for these poorly children; the special trip also gives sorely-tested siblings and parents a real break, during which they don't have to think about anything except enjoying themselves.
