Leading South Wales taxi and private hire firm Dragon Taxis has donated £1000 to Welsh Women’s Aid to support the global ‘16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence’ campaign.

Leading South Wales taxi and private hire firm Dragon Taxis has donated £1000 to Welsh Women’s Aid to support their participation in the global ‘16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence’ campaign.

Welsh Women’s Aid is the national charity in Wales working to end violence against women and girls in all its forms. This Christmas, they are joining the global 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence campaign under the theme UNITE! Activism to end violence against women and girls.

Dragon Taxis has made their donation via the Big Give Christmas Challenge, the UK’s biggest digital match funding campaign. Donations made to Welsh Women’s Aid during the week of the campaign were doubled (up to £24,000.) This means that the £1000 donation became £2000, helping Welsh Women’s Aid reach their target.

Dragon Taxis, a regional brand of the UK’s fastest-growing taxi and private hire technology platform Veezu, stepped in to donate to the worthy cause through their new community support programme ‘Funded by Veezu’. The programme is a way in which local not-for-profit initiatives can receive grants between £500 and £1000.

Jack Price, Regional Director at Dragon Taxis, said: “Driver-partners operate in the heart of their communities and often hear first-hand the difficulties people face. We wanted to give something back to those in need in our local area and hope this donation will bring some Christmas cheer to those who really need it.” Victoria Samuel, Fundraising Manager at Welsh Women’s Aid, said: “We are so grateful to Dragon Taxis for their kind donation and for helping us reach our target. They have helped us raise not only vital funds which will help us continue our lifesaving services, but awareness of the fight against gender-based violence.”
