Taxi firm raises £17,000 for hospital
A taxi firm has raised £17,000 for Hinchinbrooke Hospital.
Steve’s Taxis, based in Huntingdon and St. Neots, has been raising money for the hospital since May 2019 by donating 10p from each customer’s fare. So far an incredible £17,000 plus has been raised, and the scheme will continue until their £20,000 target has been reached.
The generous donation will be used to purchase items for staff rooms on hospital wards and clinical areas which will benefit staff who take breaks during long shifts. It will also be used to improve outside seating space for both staff and patients.
Caroline Walker, CEO at North West Anglia NHS Foundation Trust added, “I would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Steve’s Taxis. Their generosity means we can purchase items to improve break time facilities for Trust staff. This is particularly important at a time when health and wellbeing are so important.”
Steve Woodham Owner and Managing Director at Steve’s Taxis commented: “We are especially motivated to raise money for Hinchingbrooke Hospital because we are aware that hospital staff are trying to cope with extra workload caused by the pandemic.
“We provide transport for staff, their children and patients to and from the hospital. Our services have kept running throughout and we have done as much as possible to help people struggling with lockdown”.
