Courtesy Taxis Fundraising Drive

Courtesy Taxis Fundraising Drive

Mar 17, 2015
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.”

Anyone who is interested in finding out more about the appeal or the nook business network, should contact the Norfolk Fundraising Team on 01603 666767 or

  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum

  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
