Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers – Magical Taxi tour – 16 September 2022

The Master and Clerk joined nearly 500 people at 6am in Canary Wharf today for the start of the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers’ Magical Taxi Tour.  Now in its 27th year, the charity event sees a convoy of licensed London taxis take 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 Paris.  This amazing convoy can be over three miles long when running and consists of 90 plus taxis, City of London Police escorts, Gendarmerie Nationale, London Ambulance NHS Trust vehicles and AA breakdown trucks.  The WCIT sponsors one of the taxis and pictured below is the family who are travelling in the WCIT taxi.
