Free cab travel fund for NHS staff
Our NHS staff currently have enough challenges at the frontline - getting there shouldn’t be one of them.
In the daily fight against Coronavirus, many of our brave NHS nurses and key workers UK wide are having to travel to & from their hospital on public transport, despite reduced transport timings and in closer proximity to the travelling public.
minicabit , Britain’s largest cab comparison site, has partnered with The Fishmongers Charitable Trust so you can donate to fund FREE minicab trips for NHS staff between their homes and their local hospitals UK wide. With your help, we can give the NHS’ frontline staff one less thing to worry about, as they can now travel for free door to door, day or night, in less time and stress.
The impact of the COVID-19 virus is set to intensify so every donation, no matter how big or small, can help NHS staff around the UK at this critical time. Even donating what you saved in not having to commute to work last week can make a real difference!
if you know any NHS frontline staff, they can sign up for free travel now at https://www.minicabit.com/nhs .
