Glasgow Taxis Ltd raises £3,015 for Yorkhill Children’s Charity

THEY say three is the magic number but Glasgow Taxis did one better by raising £3,015 for Yorkhill Children’s Charity.

Alan Logan and Lisa Kennedy, both pediatric nurses in the Cardiac Catheterisation Laboratory at Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Sick Children, will trade wards for walking boots this September when they take on the Great Wall of China to raise money for Yorkhill Children’s Charity.

Glasgow Taxis was so inspired by the challenge the nurses had set themselves they donated 50p from each fare on Friday the 10th of April and raised a whopping £3,015 for the charity.

Stephen Flynn, vice-chair of Glasgow Taxis Ltd, said: “Both Alan and Lisa should be commended for their admirable efforts. Glasgow Taxis is so glad it is able to show its support for such a worthy cause.”

Lisa said: “We are blown away by the amount of money Glasgow Taxis has raised for us! We never dreamed it would be this much. We are so grateful to Glasgow Taxis for getting behind us!”

Kirsten Sinclair, director of Fundraising at Yorkhill Children’s Charity, said: “We would like to take this opportunity to thank Glasgow Taxis for their generosity.

“The money raised by Alan and Lisa’s Great Wall of China trek will make a real difference to our patients and their families.”
