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.
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!
