GLASGOW CABBIE IS TOP OF THE MOPS AS HE RAISES CHARITY CASH


A kind-hearted Glasgow taxi driver is cleaning up at his local rank whilst raising money for charity. Glasgow- Live reports that fellow drivers spot- ted Stephen Lalley mopping his taxi while waiting at a Castlemilk rank and asked him to do theirs too. Now while he waits on his next hire, Stephen wipes down his pals’ taxi floors for £1 a go, with all money generated going straight to the Glasgow Taxi Outing Fund, which takes 300 children to Troon every June. Stephen, who is treasurer of the charity, said: “When I started mopping my cab the guys asked me to do theirs and insisted on paying. I didn’t want to take a penny but my good pal Davie Hodgson suggested the charity donation and it all took off from there.” So far, more than £120 has been raised for next year’s Troon trip. Stephen added: “I reckon we’ll make that figure many times over before the trip. It’s been a tough time for everyone, but this is one positive which has many benefits - even cleaner taxis, a local charity benefiting and some welcome camaraderie between drivers at the Glenwood Rank.”

DRAGON TAXIS FUNDRAISING FOR WELSH CHILDREN’S HOSPICE


Dragon Taxis - Vale of Glamorgan is launching a charity campaign to support Tŷ Hafan, one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities. They will be donating a percentage of all app bookings in the Vale to the Welsh children’s hospice throughout summer. Jack Price, Regional Director for Dragon Taxis, said: “It’s been two months since we launched Dragon Taxis in the Vale of Glamorgan. We wanted to give something back to the community and support a local charity that is really making a difference. When people book their journeys via our app, they know that a percentage of their fare is going directly to support Tŷ Hafan.” The donation to Tŷ Hafan comes directly from Dragon Taxis so that the 120 Vale licenced driver partners aren’t out of pocket. Corporate Senior Fundraiser for Tŷ Hafan, Kelly Dibble, said: “We are absolutely delighted that Dragon Taxis has chosen to support Tŷ Hafan. Tŷ Hafan simply couldn’t provide its vital services without the kindness and generosity of the community and businesses like Dragon Taxis.”


GLASGO CABS HELPS TO SUPPORT NURSERY DAMAGED BY FIRE


Lanarkshire businesses have offered support to a Glasgow nursery after mindless vandals torched an outdoor classroom. Thousands of pounds worth of damage was caused to the Castlemilk Day Nursery, leaving staff and youngsters devastated. Now businesses including taxi firm GlasGo Cabs have been in touch with the nursery, offering to donate cash to help them rebuild. Sam Nisbet, the deputy head at the nursery, told Lanarkshire Live: “The community spirit has been amazing. We’ve had people at the door with cheques, we’ve had great support from our parents doing fundraising and we’ve had businesses from Castlemilk getting in touch, like GlasGo Cabs. “We can’t thank everyone enough for all their support because the community has pulled together. Even getting messages of support has lifted our spirits. “We’re not going to let the people that did this win.” The recent blaze came after the nursery was continually plagued by vandals in recent weeks, with windows smashed and graffiti daubed on the building.
