Hailo, the app-based taxi network, has announced a partnership with Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity that will see it make a donation to Rainbow Trust for every cab booked through its app.
A campaign has been launched, running from 1 - 10 October, with Hailo aiming to raise £10,000, which will provide taxi transport to hospital appointments for a whole year.
Commenting on the initiative, Russell Hall, Hailo co-founder and a London cabbie for over 20 years, said: “When I was approached by a number of Hailo cabbies to help Rainbow Trust it seemed a natural partnership where we could really help support London families. Anyone who is a parent knows that seeing their child suffer is one of the most difficult things in life to cope with.”
He continued: “The emotional and practical support Rainbow Trust provides to these families is immeasurable and we are really pleased to be able to help by providing transport to important hospital appointments.”
After downloading the Hailo app, users register their details and insert the £2 off promotional code (RAINBOW) meaning the next time they book a cab via the Hailo app they will get £2 off while helping Rainbow Trust.
