THE LONDON TAXIDRIVERS’ FUND FOR UNDERPRIVILEGED CHILDREN

HON. TREASURER’S REPORT

 (2014 – 2015)

 

It is my privilege to present the Treasurer's Report for the London Taxidrivers' Fund for Underprivileged Children for the year ending 31st October, 2015.

 

I am very grateful to the Fund's Trustees for taking time to provide me with their ongoing support in respect of my role as Hon. Treasurer.  Last year's Treasurer's Report mentioned two new members to the fund, who have stepped into their roles with relentless dedication alongside all the other trustees, continuing to make their respective contributions to the charity.

 

With the help of many donations, sponsors old and new, and the generosity of the general public, the fund has maintained reserves to enable continued support for many disadvantaged children of Greater London.  General administration expenses have been kept down once again to less than 2p in the pound, allowing nearly every penny of income to be spent on improving the quality of life for those in need.

 

During the past year the charity has granted £1,200 by supplying specialised equipment for a desperately needed mobility wheelchair and a large donation to the Haven House Children's Hospice, plus other donations large and small to many different organisations.  The cost of the annual Grosvenor House children's Christmas party at £6,883 against the previous year figure of £11,227, shows a saving, this being due to the previous two year's hire charges for the Great Room.  The annual outing to Southend-on-Sea cost £16,038.77, which showed a saving of £1,081.11 against the previous year's figures.

 

In such challenging times, the fund have been successful with street collections at events such as the Burlington Arcade, London, W1, Sainsbury's (Low Hall) Chingford, E4 and London's Victoria Station.  Also having collecting boxes placed around London has helped to raise money to meet an ever increasing demand for our help. 

 

Because of the tremendous generosity of people's donations and sponsoring, the fund have been able to recover all of our outlays and more, giving hundreds of disadvantaged children many great memories to cherish.

 

Thank you to everyone that has supported the London Taxidrivers' Fund for Underprivileged Children and we look forward to helping many more disadvantaged children in the forthcoming year.
