Well done to 30 Taxis taking over 100 kids to Southport Pleasureland earlier today.
Merseyside cabbies celebrate 36 years of treating disadvantaged kids to a great day out today at their annual summer outing.
The colourful convoy left Liverpool this morning, along with police motorcycle outriders, to take more than 100 children in care and their carers to a day out at Southport’s Pleasureland.
Southport Pleasureland has hosted the event for the last eleven years, and the team there say it's always looked forward to both by themselves and the charity members.
Each child was treated to a goody bag and balloons, before - of course - spending the afternoon on the rides.
Since the first outing in 1985 to Blackpool Illuminations, it is estimated that over 13,000 youngsters have been treated to a day to remember by the Liverpool Taxi Drivers children in care outing fund.
The charity's founder Bernie Buxton’s was included in the 2015 honours list. The 72-year-old from Stockbridge Village, Knowsley, was awarded an MBE for his charitable services.
