Wales’ leading private hire firm, Dragon Taxis, has partnered with NSPCC Cymru to donate needed funds to Childline this Christmas.

To give back this festive season, Dragon Taxis will be donating 10p from every booking made through the Dragon Taxis app during the month of December to Childline.

NSPCC Cymru provides support to children, families and professionals in caring for their children and providing therapeutic assistance to help children move on from abuse. They run campaigns working with the Welsh Government and the National Assembly for Wales to strengthen policy and legislation and urge them to take action to better protect children, as well as hosting charitable events in Wales to raise funds.

This is not the first time that Dragon Taxis, a regional brand of the UK’s fastest-growing taxi and private hire technology platform Veezu, is supporting NSPCC Cymru, as they annually donate to the charity through their Childline Club Cymru membership.

Alison Brown, Corporate Partnership and Events Manager (South Wales) at the NSPCC, said: “While Christmas comes with expectations of happiness and fun, sadly we know at Childline that for some children it can also be an extremely lonely and frightening time. That is why we are incredibly grateful to the team at Veezu for supporting us in the run up to this festive season, as this initiative with Dragon Taxis will really make a difference.

“For children and young people in desperate need of support, Childline will be a lifeline and Veezu’s support will help us ensure that our trained counsellors can be there for every child. We hope the public will support this campaign and Childline in December by making a booking through the Dragon Taxis app.”

Sally Krouma, Hyperlocal Marketing Manager for Dragon Taxis, said: “We are delighted to be supporting NSPCC and their crucial work in providing safety and comfort for children all year round. Their work is crucially important and one that we admire strongly at Dragon Taxis, so we want to raise as much money to ensure as many children can enjoy the magic of Christmas as possible.”
