90th outing to Southend-on-Sea marks milestone for children’s charity

On Thursday 12 July 2018, the London Taxi Driver’s Fund for Underprivileged Children’s Charity (LTFUC) are taking 300 disadvantaged children to Southend-on-Sea for the day for the 90th time.

The convoy of over 100 decorated taxis will gather once again at Low Hall Sainsbury’s car park, in Walthamstow Avenue, Chingford to get ready for the journey to take the underprivileged children on an adventure to the seaside, leaving at approximately 9.30am.

Once they set off, they head to the Cliffs Pavilion for lunch and then it’s on to Southend’s amusement park, Adventure Island. Once they have sampled the rides, it’s back to the Cliffs Pavilion for a disco where the winner of the best decorated taxi is announced.

Michael Son from the LTFUC said “This is the 90th annual outing and we are very proud at reaching this milestone and of the charity’s achievements to date.

“The purpose of this day is to get the children out enjoying themselves, away from their usual environment.

“The taxi drivers all give up their time for free but say it is worth it just to see the smiles on the kids faces as they travel in convoy to the seaside and spend an afternoon at Adventure Island enjoying the rides."
