When your life seems like a continuous conveyer belt of doctors appointments, medication, and not knowing what the next day holds, it's a breath of fresh air for the whole family to be able to get away and have some fun and excitment. The taxi drivers who give up their time and use of their taxis to make this happen each year love to see the joy that it brings to the children and their families and they can't help but come back to volunteer again and again. It costs £1400 per taxi to cover fuel, hotels, food and hotel expenses.

I met a London taxi driver today who recently got back from the Magical Taxi Tour that he takes part in every year. Its a convoy of over 90 taxis which take the trip across the English Channel to Disneyland Paris. Their passengers are children with chronic debilitating illnesses and life limiting conditions with their families who would never be able to go on such a holiday without the medical assistance available on this tour.
