A London black cab co-operative is offering free rides to Homerton Hospital over Christmas, to support families with loved ones who are ill.

Taxiapp UK will be laying on the free trips on Wednesday afternoon.

Sean Paul Day, founding member of the not-for-profit group, which is owned directly by the drivers themselves, said: “We understand Christmas can be challenging for all those with loved ones in hospital so TAXIAPP want to offer as much support as we can for those travelling to visit family members.

“Our goal is to make transport accessible for all.”

Taxiapp accepts all kinds of passengers, from wheelchair users to those travelling with pets.
