Seaside fun for hundreds of London kids on convoy of taxis to Southend

The sunshine came out for the London taxidrivers’ annual outing to the seaside for hundreds of underprivileged kids.

A convoy of 100 taxis packed with youngsters headed off from Victoria Park in East London for a day out at Southend-on-Sea this-morning.

They were arriving on the seafront for lunch at Southend’s Cliffs Pavilion, then scooped down to Adventure Island for an afternoon of fun and games before returning to the pavilion for a tea and disco.

The kids are due to start back for Lond0n in the taxi convoy around 6pm, no doubt thoroughly exhausted by the day, all courtesy of the London Taxidrivers’ Fund for Underprivileged Children.
