MIKE SON: OUR KIDS ARE ORF TO THE PALACE!
Mike and Dave Lessman (D19) will be at the Palace
with the kids
London Taxidrivers' Fund for Underprivileged Children are currently
celebrating 75 years of helping thousands of needy children and to
mark the anniversary, DaC Board member and Chairman of the Fund, Mike
Son, told Call Sign that they have been invited to take 200 special
needs children to Buckingham Palace.
The trip takes place on Monday 2nd
June and the 200 selected children will travel in a convoy of 100
decorated taxis to a special tea party in the grounds of Buck House,
which will be hosted by Her Majesty The Queen. Mike told us that the
LTFUC would first be taking the children for a trip on the London Eye
followed by a visit to the London Aquarium. A short tour through the
City of London will then lead to the Royal tea party.
Mike said: "We are an
looking forward to a great day, especially as this will be the Fund's
first children's tea party ever to be held inside Buckingham
Several DaC drivers who are on
the committee will be accompanying the kids. They truly deserve the
75th anniversary raffle tickets are available from Alan
Cohen on 020 8958 8308 (or any other committee member). There are some
super prizes including a home DVD theatre system, but more
importantly, you will be helping a great cause…
Yang Ban Seng is the new City Cab CEO
Following the merger between Comfort and DelGro in Singapore into the
largest transportation company that the world has seen, the CEO of
Singapore's CityCab Pte Ltd, Mr Lim Hung Siang has relinquished his position
and taken up the post of CEO, China/UK Taxi Strategic Business Unit. Mr Yang
Ban Seng - who formerly ran Comfort - takes over as the new CityCab CEO.
Call Sign wishes both Lim Hung Siang and Yang Ban Seng the best
of luck in their new positions, but can't help wondering exactly what the
China/UK Taxi Strategic Business Unit is and what it's aims might be?
Perhaps they will let Call Sign know...?
DaC's relations with CityCab/Comfort/Delgro are excellent, even
though they own our biggest competitors in ComCab.
