East Wintergarden and Ampersand support children’s Magical Taxi Tour
Organised annually by the Worshipful Company of Hackney Carriage Drivers, this event sees a convoy of over 90 licensed London taxis – up to three miles long when running – take more than 200 children, suffering from a range of chronic and debilitating illnesses, on a three-day trip of a lifetime to Disneyland Resort Paris. Since it began in 1994, the Magical Taxi Tour has helped bring enormous joy and excitement to the children and their families.
Paul Jackson, Managing Director of Ampersand says, "Nothing gives us more pleasure than this event for the Children’s Magical Taxi Tour. This is third year that we have organised the breakfast at East Wintergarden and all of us get involved with preparations to make sure the children have the best possible send-off for their trip to Disneyland.”
Early on the morning of 23rd September, the team at the renowned East Wintergarden served a fantastic ‘Big Breakfast’ for all 200 children and their families, before the giant convoy of taxis departed to catch the ferry at Dover. The big send-off included the Lord Mayor of the City of London cutting the red ribbon to mark the start of their amazing trip.
