Taxi! Dorset care home residents peruse unusual cab for charity
Taxi! Dorset care home residents peruse unusual cab for charity
CARE home residents have enjoyed a hands-on look at Dorset's most eye-catching taxi, helping disadvantaged children in the process. \r\nColten Care homes Bourne View in Poole and Avon Cliff in Bournemouth both welcomed visits by the former London cab on a road trip aimed at raising £100,000 for Variety Wessex.\r\nIn an initiative by charity supporter the BC Club, business people are taking it in turns to spend a week driving the taxi around the conurbation, showing it off as they seek donations. \r\nEach club member who drives the cab has to pay £250 for the privilege and make one addition to the vehicle.\r\nSo far these have included an outboard engine, a surfboard on the roof, fluffy dice on the rear-view mirror, a Dukes of Hazzard-style air horn and even a toilet in place of the passenger seat.
