Support free cabs for NHS workers

To help relieve the pressure on NHS staff travelling to and from hospitals minicabit , a nationwide cab booking service, will provide through up to 800 cab companies free cab services to NHS staff. They will engage 25,000 drivers and make as many available as possible.

THE NEED IS URGENT.

Our chairman, Charles Spicer is working with the Fishmongers’ Company (where he chairs the Philanthropy Committee) to support it as a registered charity.

IXICO will be donating £2,500 as part of a corporate donation. Additionally, we will be donating £500 to supply fruit to local NHS hospitals.

Donations will fund the free service to NHS staff which will be provided by the cab companies at cost. We hope to raise £300,000 quickly and are also making a public appeal via https://www.gofundme.com/f/free-cabs-for-nhs

Please make your corporate donation as below and follow the steps in the following mail regarding gift aid and receipt of funds.

 

The charity is The Fishmongers’ Company’s Charitable Trust, charity no. 263690.

A note from the Steve Maile, Finance Director at The Fishmongers’ Company:

It would be most helpful if donors could email finance@fishmongers.org.uk when they have donated to confirm the amount given and the payment reference used (and to include a gift aid declaration if applicable). I will ask the team to send an email acknowledgement.  If donors need something more for their records then we will provide it, but I’d ask them to bear with us as this will be easier to sort out once we’re back in the Hall and have access to printers and postage etc.

Thank you
