On 15th December 2022, minicabit, Britain’s biggest cab comparison site, is rolling out its ‘Fares that Care’ campaign to support NHS staff, patients and communities in the North East of England this winter.
With every cab trip booked on its website, app and partner channels before 31st January 2023, minicabit will donate £1 to NHS Charities Together. The campaign also coincides with the launch of its brand new mobile app which will show quotes for the cheapest cabs, including Electric Vehicles, from local Private Hire Operators in the North East.
Minicabit has been actively supporting the NHS since the start of the pandemic in 2020, when it raised over £250,000 to fund free cab trips for NHS staff across the UK when public transport was restricted. More recently, it has launched a comprehensive online cab booking system for NHS teams across different sites, funded in part by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK.
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, responded: “ 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.”
