ABC drivers take on ‘Mongol Rally 2017’

Next summer, two drivers from ABC are entering the craziest motoring adventure on the planet!

In July 2017 with only a 16 year old 1.3 Toyota Verso (and their wits!), Luchian Preda and Adrian Tritade will attempt to travel 10,000 miles across the mountains, desert and rough terrain of Europe and Asia with no set route, no back up and no support.

This annual event sees competitors try and complete this two month challenge with all monies raised (£1,000 minimum raised to enter) going to charity.  Half will be donated to the official charity, Cool Earth and the other half will go to Luchian and Adrian’s charity of choice, the Indee Rose Trust.

We will send out regular updates on their progress across the 18 countries and wish them all the best in their rewarding adventure.

If you would like to donate, no matter how small the amount, please visit  Mongol Rally fundraising page

Alfie’s Paralympic Success

ABC Sponsored Alfie Hewett returns home from his first Paralympic Games in Rio with not one, but two silver medals.

18 year old Alfie battled through the men’s singles rounds, defeating seeds 7, 4 and 2 along the way, before losing out to his doubles partner (and roommate), Gordon Reid in the Wheelchair Tennis final.

Alfie and Gordon narrowly missed out on gold medals in the men’s wheelchair doubles final in a three set thriller against the French number 1 seeds.

Everyone here at ABC Taxis are extremely proud of Alfie and all he has acheived this year. Well done and we can’t wait to see what Tokyo 2020 brings!

Chris.P Duck returns home!

After finishing in the top 20 at the Grand Norwich Duck Race, Chris.P Duck was cleaned up and ready to be auctioned off for charity at The Maid’s Head Hotel.

Having grown very fond of ‘Chris.P’ the taxi duck, ABC’s Marketing Manager (also named Chris) was sent along to bring him back to his rightful owners. After furious back and forth bidding, £100 was our top bid and enough to secure the duck’s journey home to ABC. Chris will be re-entered into the 2017 Grand Duck Race being held next August.

Over £8,000 was raised at the auction which will go towards the very worthy charity, Break.
