They’re normally used to charging fares for moving people around our great county of Norfolk but for staff at Courtesy Taxis in Norwich, they’re also fundraising as the latest local company to sign up to the nook business network
The long established taxi firm based in Prince of Wales Road, which rose to fame following the Channel 4 documentary ‘The Minicab Office - Up All Night’ has more than 70 cars, operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, has committed to raising £15,000 over the term of the appeal. The company has really hit the ground running and been extremely pro-active promoting the appeal to their customers and corporate clients.
Their four large TV screens in the 50-seater waiting room now proudly promotes the appeal and encourages others to join with their support. There is also a coin collector on site where customers can donate their loose change.
All vehicles will adorn the nook logo promoting not only the partnership with Courtesy Taxis
but also encouraging others to support the appeal too.
On the fundraising side, staff are already planning a sponsored event in which all the drivers can participate in and plans are also underway for a family fun day for early Summer.
Mark Streeter, Owner and Managing Director of Courtesy Taxis, said: “Myself and all the staff are delighted to be supporting the nook appeal. It is a local charity and we recognise what a fantastic job they do. We are keen to help reach the goal of opening the nook as we realise that new facilities and space are desperately required. We have some great plans to help reach our target and we look forward to working with the team at EACH.”
