Diamond cabbies want pink taxi for charity
YOUR help is needed for one local taxi firm to fulfil a colourful ambition to spray a cab pink for charity.
Diamond Cabs in Gainsborough is looking for donations and ideas to raise enough cash to re-spray a taxi.
The newly-pink car will then be driven with profits donated to Cancer Research UK.
The taxi firm’s bosses say they chose a cause that is very close to their hearts.
“A few of our staff have been touched by cancer and it’s such an awful disease that effects everyone, so we wanted to do something a little bit different to help out and raise money,” said Diamond Cabs manager Julie Sanderson-Cole.
She continued: “We chose pink because of the colour’s association with various cancer charities and because it would be really eye-catching and draw people’s attention to the cause and get more people supporting our campaign.”
But Diamond Cabs has quite a long way to go before the firm can have its pink charity taxi.
“I’ve been quite surprised at how much it could cost,” said Julie. “I’ve received a few quotes from different places and found out that it ranges from £1,400 - £1,700.”
“We would welcome any donations or ideas for sponsorship or donations - the chaps that would be driving the car are even willing to wear pink polo shirts.”
Julie added: “It would just be amazing to be able to give something back, so please get in touch and get involved if you think that you might be able to help.”
Julie’s husband and fellow owner David continued: “Our drivers would be really up for driving a pink car if it was for a good cause - I think they find the idea quite novel.”
“That’s why we came up with the idea really - to be a bit different and do what we can to help out.”
