Fares that care: Cab to support the NHS
If you get a cab this holiday season, you could be supporting key NHS charities.
This is thanks to a new initiative from Britain’s largest cab comparison site, minicabit.
Their ‘Fares that Care’ campaign is designed to to support the wellbeing of NHS staff, patients and communities this winter.
The campaign will see minicabit donate £1 to NHS Charities Together for every cab trip booked now on its website, app and partner channels that’s completed by 31st January 2023.
Amer Hasan, CEO of minicabit, discussed the good work that will be done with these funds.
He said : “Since the peak of the pandemic, the challenges that NHS staff and their communities face have only gotten tougher, especially this winter. minicabit stepped up when transport was a key concern, now the issues are broader.
“So we approached NHS Charities Together as its network of 230 NHS charities across the UK means reaching those in need on a much wider scale as they know where help is needed most.”
Ellie Orton OBE, CEO of NHS Charities Together, echoed this point and show gratitude for minicabit’s continued commitment.
She said “ We’re delighted that minicabit has stepped up again to help us support our NHS staff, patients and communities all over the UK.
“At a busy time when people are booking travel for their Xmas parties and airport trips UK wide, minicabit donating from its own revenues will mean a lot to the charities we support in this crucial winter period. We hope many will take advantage of its cab fares that care, and help the NHS go a bit further for everyone this Christmas.”
This is minicabit’s latest showing of support for the NHS, having previously raised £250,000 to fund free cab trips for frontline workers.
Alongside agency, Innovate UK, they have also launched a comprehensive online cab booking system for NHS teams.
The ‘Fares that Care’ campaign coincides with the launch of minicabit’s new mobile app.
