Arthur Rank Hospice Charity was selected by community nomination in late 2021, and throughout 2022 0.5% of every booking made by card through the Panther Taxis app was pledged to the charity, with donations made quarterly.
Surpassing the initial target of £20,000, the total donation amounted to £26,264.73 – the most ever raised through the scheme.
Paul Clare, General Manager of Panther Taxis, said:
“Raising more than £26,000 for Arthur Rank Hospice Charity has exceeded our expectations. We hope these funds will give a timely boost to support the charity in their important work providing compassionate care to those that need it in Cambridgeshire.
“It has been a pleasure to work with their fundraising team and their supporters. Wee hope to work with them again in the future.”
Jodie Vaughan, Head of Fundraising at Arthur Rank Hospice Charity, said:
“We are grateful to everyone who helped raise this amazing amount, from Panther Taxis and their staff to passengers who used the app in the last year. All of you have helped make a difference to the lives of so many people in our communities with a life-limiting illness.”
Sharon Allen OBE, CEO of Arthur Rank Hospice Charity sent a video to all the Panther Taxi passengers to say thank you:
