The Taxi Charity For Military Veterans, formally known as The London Taxi Benevolent Association For War Disabled (LTBAFWD), was founded on the 17th February 1948 in London.
The Taxi Charity are a group of London taxi drivers who volunteer their services to take veterans on a range of trips. They span from day trips around Britain to historical spots throughout Europe such as: Normandy, Dunkirk, and Wageningen, Netherlands.
In May this year, ABF The Soldiers’ Charity provided a grant of £12,000 towards the Taxi Charity’s ‘Back to the Beaches’ trip in Normandy on 4th June. This enabled 98 World War Two veterans, the oldest being 99 years old, to go on a four-day trip to Normandy to join the French in their D-Day celebrations.
