Memorial football match raises cash for charity
CABBIES took a ride to the Essex Air Ambulance base in memory of a former collegue.
Drivers and staff from Colchester taxi firm Panther Cabs and Panther Cabs Ladies have launched an annual charity football match.
The event began after driver Andy Henderson lost his life in a motorcycle accident 18 months ago despite the best efforts of the air ambulance medical team.
Friends and colleagues at Panther Cabs decided to keep his memory alive by raising funds for the lifesaving service, and held a match last year to raise cash to treat Andy's children.
On Wednesday a taxi made the trip to the charity’s Earls Colne air base to present them with a cheque for £320 from the first charity match.
