A GROUP of cab drivers have had a fare old time raising money for charity this year.
Avenue Taxis has been donating between a pound and a penny from every fare to its chosen charity St Elizabeth Hospice since April last year.
The money quickly added up and this weekend they presented a cheque of more than £2500 to staff at the hospice.
The Ipswich-based firm has also been helping the hospice by collecting mobile phones and toner cartridges at their office.
Patsy Johnson, corporate and community fundraising manager, said: “We are extremely grateful to Avenue Taxis for this donation. It is such a simple idea and has raised a significant amount of money in a short space of time.”
The cash will go towards the running costs of the hospice.
