Tradex Sponsor Charity Taxi Ride to Disneyland Paris

Between Friday 12th September 2014 and Sunday 14th September 2014 we proudly sponsored a taxi that took part in the Children’s Magical Taxi Tour. The charity event sees a convoy of London’s licensed taxis begin at Canary Wharf and take children with debilitating illnesses and life limiting conditions on a once in a lifetime trip to Disneyland Paris.

The Children’s Magical Taxi Tour is an event that is organised annually by the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers and is only made possible by those who sponsor the event and the taxi drivers that give up their time. The average amount it costs to sponsor a taxi for the event is £1,250 and this includes the expense of a hotel, fuel, food, admission charges etc. The convoy can consist of over 90 taxis, Gendarmerie Nationale, City of London Police escorts, London Ambulance NHS Trust vehicles and AA breakdown trucks. The convoy can stretch to over three miles long when running.

The Children’s Magical Taxi Tour has helped take nearly 4000 children to Disneyland Paris since its launch in 1994. Many proud taxi drivers have taken part every year since 1994, giving up their time and wages to help deserving children have a happy day out with their families.

Our thanks go out to all the taxi drivers who gave their time and use of their vehicles to allow the children to go on a trip they'll never forget.  We look forward to The Children’s Magical Taxi Tour taking place again next September and for years to come.
