HAMILTON TAXI FIRM USE SCARECROW TO RAISE MONEY FOR CANCER CHARITY


A Hamilton taxi firm has created their own cheeky scarecrow to join the many on show in Bothwell Scarecrow Festival. The Daily Record reports that Wellman Cars decided to have a bit of fun with the festival this year while raising cash for Macmillan Cancer Support. They posted the picture of the scarecrow, Wahnita, located at Hamilton Road, on their Facebook page saying: “Wahnita is taking part in the Bothwell scarecrow dis- play and looking to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer. “Here is how you can help. For every share of this post we pledge to make a donation of £1 to Macmillan Cancer up to 10.10.20. “For everyone who shares this post we will enter you into a free prize draw. Winner will be announced on 12.10.20 to receive a cash prize of £100. “Tag us in your Instagram posts and you will qualify for a free Wellman Cars gift voucher.

STOKE FIRM’S AIM: NO CHILD SHOULD GO HUNGRY


After the inspiring work by Marcus Rashford, Magnum Taxis has collaborated with Pak Foods to organise food packs for low income families. The Stoke-on-Trent firm wants to do its part to ensure the children of this country don’t go hungry. Throughout half-term it distributed 20 food packs daily containing milk, bread, noodles and biscuits. Customers were asked to contribute by sharing the firm’s social media post, tagging in their friends and family as well as increasing awareness about this issue. It’s what Nana would do. #endchildpoverty #marcusrashford #foodpoverty #taxis #stokeontrent #staffordshire #charity


difference.” Clare Welsh, director of Wellman Cars, told the Advertiser: “We thought we would have a little fun with the scarecrow with all that is going on right now. I got the idea to use an old Halloween costume of mine and have a Wellman lady who we have named Wahnita, as we already have our bear mas- cot called Welma. “Every October we either hold a Macmillan coffee morning from our office, a Wear It Pink Day or hold a fundraiser in an evening. We have raised over £10,000 for cancer charities in the past five years through our ‘Wellman Cares About Our Community’ initiative. “Having lost many very close family mem- bers and drivers through cancer, we as a family business do what we can to support these marvellous charities. “We hope to be doing many more fundraising projects through our Wellman Cares banner in the near future.”


TAUNTON TAXI SERVICES FREE MEALS OFFER TO STRUGGLING FAMILIES


A family who own a taxi business are offering to supply free food to people struggling to make ends meet. The team at Taunton Taxi Services wanted to help after the Government voted not to supply free school meals over half term. Max Bishop, who runs the company with his wife Jade Jewell-Bishop, mum Cyndy Slatter and her husband Lee, told the Som- erset County Gazette: “It’s not something massive, it’s just something we wanted to do.” “We don’t want to see people struggling and we’re going to move heaven and earth to get something going on a daily basis. If anyone is finding it hard to put food on the table, come and let us know. We’ll get something out to you. We’ll carry on doing this for as long as we can. “Jade and I have five children of our own and we don’t want to see other families struggling. A lot of people are losing their jobs and Universal Credit doesn’t stretch far enough for them.” Max said it was wrong of MPs to vote against extending the free meals scheme inspired by Manchester United and Eng-

land football star Marcus Rashford. The Government aren’t helping some of the people who really need it,” added Max. “It’s not fair. “We’re trying to put something back as our business is getting back to something like normality. We’ll be funding this, supplying and delivering the food, and we’ve already had messages from people who want to help as well.” Taunton Taxi Services, which has 11 vehi- cles, offered NHS staff working at Musgrove Park Hospital half price fares during lockdown.
