"A Once in a Lifetime Trip that they will never forget"
One of London's most unique annual charity events, the Magical Taxi Tour 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 Disney® Paris. This event has brought moments of great joy and happiness to many children such as Danielle.
The amazing convoy can reach over three miles long, and consists of more than 90 taxis, escorts from the City of London Police and Gendarmerie Nationale, London Ambulance NHS Trust vehicles and the AA.
Organised annually by the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, the event is only possible with the generous support of private donors and sponsors.
They contribute the £1,500 per taxi needed to feed, transport and admit the convoy to Disneyland Paris. The taxi drivers give their time and use of their vehicles for free. Everyone on the trip is a volunteer.
We are filled with sadness that some of these youngsters have since died, but with your help we are determined to give more children this once in a lifetime opportunity.
The trip starts from Canary Wharf where we entertain and feed the children and helpers with the 'Big breakfast' before the giant convoy departs to catch ferry at Dover.
In the past this spectacular scene has attracted a great deal of media coverage with numerous television companies in England, France and around the world following our trip.
If you sponsor one or more taxis, you will be invited to the breakfast send-off. As well as taking part, there are plenty of photo opportunities, and we can arrange for photographs to be taken for you. Find out more about becoming a sponsor here.
