Thankfully the threatened bad weather did not materialise, with 8,000 people sitting at tables on the lawn outside in the sun enjoying tea, sandwiches and cakes and exploring the huge gardens and lake.  At a typical garden party around 27,000 cups of tea, 20,000 sandwiches and 20,000 slices of cake are consumed from a 408-feet long buffet, so everyone left feeling very full!!   What a great experience and an afternoon that will always be remembered.

Monday 2nd June 2003

On Monday 2nd June 2003 the LTFUC were invited to take 200 'special needs' and disadvantaged children in a convoy of 100 decorated taxis to a special tea party in the grounds of Buckingham Palace.  The party was held to mark the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Her Majesty the Queen's Coronation.

Before going to the party, the children were taken by us for a trip on the London Eye, followed by a visit to the London Aquarium.  The convoy of taxis then took a short tour through the City of London, where the deputy Mayor took the salute.

At the Palace the children were treated to a wonderful tea, with lots of candy-floss and ice-cream.  There was also a special Coronation cake made by the Palace for the children.  There was lots of entertainment on hand, with music from the Band of the Coldstream Guards and a Steel Band, plus bouncy castles, carousels, swing boats and a Big Top circus show.  Each child was given a party bag and a commemorative brochure when they left.  The LTFUC presented the Queen with a mounted miniature glass London Taxi to mark the occasion.  Being introduced to Her Majesty and Prince Phillip, together with other members of the Royal Family, was a day none of us will forget, especially as 2003 was also our 75th anniversary year - what a way to mark our anniversary.

20th July 2004

On July 20th 2004, the Committee of the London Taxidrivers' Fund for Underprivileged Children attended a reception held in the gardens of Clarence House, after receiving an invitation from His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales. 

This unusual event was held to recognise the contribution made by the London taxi industry to the capital and was also attended by members of many other trade organisations. 

During the reception, where guests enjoyed wine or soft drinks with a variety of canapies, Prince Charles, accompanied by Mrs Camilla Parker-Bowles, chatted with the committee and other guests and paid a warm tribute to the charity work carried out by many of London's taxi drivers.  Considerable interest was shown in the various events and outings that have been undertaken by the Fund.

Although only lasting two hours, the reception proved to be most enjoyable and the coverage given by the press and television was a credit to all the taxi charities and the trade in general.  Below shows some of the committee of the LTFUC all looking very dapper!!!
