Kids’ Capital Day Out


June 26, 2013

Edinburgh’s streets were lined with colourfully dressed hackney taxis as they took part in the kids outing funded by the capital’s hard-working cabbies.

The 67th annual kids outing saw sick and disabled children start out from Murrayfield Stadium and heading to Yellowcraig beach, where they were in for a treat-filled afternoon.  Horns were honked and water guns enthusiastically squirted from the cabs as the drove through Edinburgh and along the East Lothian coast.

Kind-hearted Cabbies

Amongst the major sponsors, Cab Direct was delighted to take part in the event for yet another year, helping to make it an unforgettable day.   Everyone enjoyed a stop for ice-cream which was then followed by a barbeque at the seaside.

Cab Direct Sales Executive, Sandra Docherty, said: “The outing was a great success as usual.   The cabbies give up their own time and put so much effort into making the day fun – the smiles from the kids make it all worthwhile.”

Fun for All

With a fully tummy and smiles all round, the children were returned to Murrayfield Stadium.  We’re still debating who has more fun on the outing – the children or the cabbies?  Certainly a fantastic effort was made by all and we’re looking forward to seeing what ideas they will come up with for next year!
