Britannia Taxis supports Cash for Kids’ Holiday Hunger appeal

BRITANNIA Taxis, Liverpool’s leading private hire operator, has donated £500 to the local arm of Cash for Kids in support of Cash for Kids Day on 2 May.

Britannia is a regional hub of the UK’s fastest growing private hire technology platform, Veezu, and has stepped in to donate through its Funded by Veezu scheme. The community support initiative is a way in which local residents, charities and sports teams can apply for funding and grants, set up to improve the communities in which Veezu operates.

Cash for Kids supports children and young people affected by poverty,  life-limiting illness and those with additional needs. Based across 22 areas in the UK, Cash for Kids is a grant giving charity that helps community groups, charitable organisations, schools and individual cases. The latest figures from the End Child Poverty Coalition show that 1 in 3 local children are living in poverty and, in some areas, it is as high as 36%.

2 May marked Cash for Kids Day, where organisations came together to raise as much as possible for the cause, with a particular focus on combating holiday hunger to make sure all children have access to a hot meal during the holidays.

Veezu has donated £500 from its regional areas of Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, Liverpool, Sheffield and Portsmouth, bringing the total donation to £3000. According to statistics given by Cash for Kids, it’s predicted that £3000 will help 60 children in need.

Hayley Smallman, Charity Manager at Radio City’s Cash for Kids, said:

“We are so grateful to Veezu for supporting us across the UK in six regions for Cash for Kids Day. For the passengers of Veezu, they can feel confident in their choice, as they will be helping disadvantaged children access activities and food during the school holidays. For many children it will be their only daily meal. The generosity of companies like Veezu, as well as donations from the general public, help us help children that need it the most.”

Rosanna Hynes, Hyperlocal Marketing Manager for Britannia Taxis, said:

“Reaching out and supporting local communities is a core part of what we do at Veezu. Cash for Kids does incredible work in supporting children who need it the most and we hope to continue to support their hard work in the future.”
