Charity Fundraising Day at Russell Square Cabmen's Shelter

On Friday 29th June, the Russell Square Cabmen’s Shelter will be holding a Charity Day to help raise money for the London Taxi Drivers’ Fund for Underprivileged Children (LTFUC).

The charity was founded in 1928 in this very Cabmen’s Shelter when it was located in Leicester Square, before being moved to Russell Square some decades ago!

All food and drink at this iconic shelter served on Friday 29th June day can be purchased by making a donation to the charity. There will be delicious homemade cakes on offer and there will also be a raffle draw with some fabulous prizes up for grabs!

We are kindly being assisted by a team of volunteer London taxi drivers who will be fundraising for us on the day by donating their tips for the day and raising awareness about this wonderful charity, who this year celebrate their 90th Anniversary.

About the Cabmen’s Shelter Fund

The Cabmen’s Shelter Fund was established in 1875 to run shelters for the drivers of hansom cabs and later hackney carriages.

Between 1875 and 1914, 61 Cabmen’s Shelters were constructed. Today, only a few working shelters remain, they are all Grade II listed buildings and they are all still run by the Cabmen’s Shelter Fund.

Katie Simmonds has run the Cabmen’s Shelter at Russell Square for the last 4 years.
