minicabit has launched its ‘Fares that Care’ campaign to support the wellbeing of NHS staff, patients and communities this winter. minicabit will itself donate £1 to NHS Charities Together for every cab trip booked now on its website, app and partner channels that’s completed by 31st January 2023.
This campaign is the latest example of minicabit’s support for the NHS. During the pandemic when the UK first went into lockdown in 2020, minicabit raised over £250,000 (https://www.gofundme.com/f/free-cabs-for-nhs) to fund free cab trips for NHS staff UK wide to reach the frontline when public transport was restricted. Recently, with co-funding from the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK, it launched a comprehensive online cab booking system for NHS teams across different sites which also enables them to track their savings on cab spend and carbon footprints.
Amer Hasan, CEO of minicabit, said: “Since the peak of the pandemic, the challenges that NHS staff and their communities face have only gotten tougher, especially this winter. minicabit stepped up when transport was a key concern, now the issues are broader. So we approached NHS Charities Together as its network of 230 NHS charities across the UK means reaching those in need on a much wider scale as they know where help is needed most.”
Ellie Orton OBE, CEO of NHS Charities Together, said: “We’re delighted that minicabit has stepped up again to help us support our NHS staff, patients and communities all over the UK. At a busy time when people are booking travel for their Xmas parties and airport trips UK wide, minicabit donating from its own revenues will mean a lot to the charities we support in this crucial winter period. We hope many will take advantage of its cab fares that care, and help the NHS go a bit further for everyone this Christmas.”
